32 bit print driver on Server 2008 R2

We are in the process of moving all of our print drivers to a single 2008 R2 print server.  The problem is, there is not 64 bit version of 1 of our drivers.

We have are currently using Lexmark T632 version 1.9 and we cannot change that.  We've tried many other Lexmark drivers and they dont work with what we use that printer for.

The 64 bit driver doesnt need to work, the printer will only be used by 32 bit machines.  I just need to find a way to get 2008 R2 to let me share a printer with this 32 bit driver.

Is there a way to fool 2008 R2 into letting me upload the 32bit driver as a 64 bit driver?

I read a post that suggested editing the .inf file to make it look like a 64 bit driver but I've been unable to find any details on this and haven't had any success on my own.

Any help would be appreciated.
