Problems with Network Printer

Printer = HP LaserJet P4014n

Networked on Windows Server 2003 32 bit

I have no clue how to set up on a Window 7 64 bit computer.  

I have searched the internet and the instructions suck.  

Help please

Are you wanting to share it from the server or install it directly as a network printer on the workstation (usually the better option)?

Put a check in the x64 box and load the 64bit driver on the server as shown in the laserjet picture.  If you cannot load the x64 driver its because it is not identical to the 32bit driver. So you would download the latest 32bit and 64bit drive and load them both on the server for the latest ones would be identical.
Install the driver on the Win 7 PC as a local printer (using either LPT1 or a Standard TCP/IP port). Then connect to the server and install the printer.

If you want to bypass the server, just install it on the PC with a Standard TCP/IP port. Make sure to install it as a local printer
