is your server 2003 32bit or 64 bit?

Above answer is the way to go

if still a problem, a workable alternative is to install the printer as a local printer using the add printer wizard on the client Pc, but create a new tcp/ip port pointing at the Ip address of the printer ( assuming it is a static address?)

i had already tried using the IP address but it didnt work due to incorrect driver that can had sent with printer.  in the end i downloaded a new driver from their website and installed using ip address.  thanks for your advise much appreciated!
