Trying to push a 64bit driver to a client via a 32bit print server

Client: Windows 7 Professional x64
Print Server: Server 2003 x32

The pushprinterconnections.exe which is on the print server works great for all of our x32 clients running Windows XP x32 by mapping the printers via group policy. Starting to setup users now with new machines running the windows 7 pro x64. In print management I have added the 64bit driver for the Xerox Phaser but I think I'm missing something because my printer is not mapping to the Windows 7(x64) machine.
Do I have to create a whole new printer in Print Management along with an AD container and policy?

Thanks again,
