How to add 64bit print drivers

How to add 64bit print drivers

Hi,I have a domain with a mix of 32 bit XP pro machines, and a couple of 64 bit Win 7 machines.

One of the XP machines is hosting an HP 2550L printer and has the Share enabled. A 64 bit Win 7 needs to print to it but of course needs the right drivers. The only 64 bit driver for this printer is the universal print driver. The Win7 machine already has this driver on it to enable it to use another printer. My question is: Do I have to install the universal print driver to the host 32 bit machine in order for the 7 pc to print to the printer?
