I know how to add additional drivers. What I don't know is how to get Vista
on the list of Additional Drivers. There's not even a Browse button to add
"other" types of drivers. We're pretty much stuck with what's available.

Windows Server 2003 doesn't know Vista either.

I'm hoping that there's an MS patch to get Vista listed there. I came across
this problem last year when I acquired the first Vista Business machine at
the office. I got so many other problems with Vista. I finally decided to
downgrade it to XP Pro. I stopped worrying about printer driver for Vista
since then. I'll be great to learn the trick (reghack or patch) to get Vista
on the list.
