Default Can't install printer from print server- No Driver

I have just installed a network printer on our server running windows server 2003. When I look at the additional drivers under properties it shows that it has the windows 2k3 and windows XP driver for x86 processors. When I go try to install the printer (the shared printer from the server) on a client computer, it tells me "The server for [my printer] does not have the correct driver". Anyone know why it would do this?

Through the add printer wizard as a local printer. I ended up just sharing the driver folder. Then when I installed it on the clients I could go and select the driver manually. I'd still like to know why it's not available from the server automatically though.
