Hi,
Server 2008 R2 64bit - clients running XP 32bit connecting to the server via RDP - how do I get around the driver issue so that XP users can redirect print jobs from the 08 Server to their local printer?  Any suggestions welcome, thanks.

You did not explain exactly the conditions in your environment, so I'm going to guess you are trying to send prent jobs from server to xp machine getting jebrish!
Try and send raw picture instread.
For the xp users use an image writer printer, send the pictures for the xp to print.
