For clients that are 2008 R2?  MS has prevented use of unsigned drivers on all x64 servers starting with 2008.  They have provided no persistent way to allow unsighed drivers.  They do not want to support OS's that have them.  
There is a boot option that allows it to ignore driver signatures, but you have to select this every time you reboot.
If you are looking for a way to have a 2008 R2 DC push this policy to Vista/7 x64 clients then look at the last long post here: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=232090
There is also a tool that is supposed to sign the drivers for you so the production OS accepts them, look here: http://www.ngohq.com/?page=dseo
