win2k3 print server error with vista and xp print drivers

    I'm trying to get vista drivers installed as an additional driver on my print
    server, but have no idea how to do it. When I tried adding two different
    shares, one for xp and one for vista to the same printer it hung the add
    printer application.

    currently, I can only get one group of people working, it's either I install
    the xp drivers or I remove that and install the vista drivers. I can't seem
    to get them both working at the same time.

    any help?

    it is w2k3, but when I click the button that says additional drivers it gives
    me these options:

    itanium: xp, server2k3
    x64: xp, server 2k3
    x86: w2k,xp,server 2k3 (selected)
    x86: 95,98,ME
    x86: nt4.0

    there are no options for vista drivers.

    the server is win2k3, and yes, i've tried to install additional drivers,
    problem is the only options i get when i select additional drivers is

    itanium: xp,server 2k3
    x64: xp, server 2k3
    x86: w2k, xp, server 2k3 (selected)
    x86: 95,98,ME
    x86: nt 4.0

    there are no options for vista. The server is fully patched in all 3
    categories (critical, win2k3,drivers) with sp2. I've installed the vista
    drivers for the printer and vista clients work, but xp clients do not, and
    then i've removed and added the xp drivers and xp clients work but vista
    clients do not.
