Quick question - I have a printer shared out from a workstation with a handful of users connecting to it via the Share. If I change the driver on the share (for example, from a model specific HP to the HP Universal Driver) - what happens to the users connected to that printer next time they wish to print to it?

From Microsoft TechNet's Update and Manage Printer Drivers:

To update or change the printer drivers for a printer, use the following procedure. Client computers automatically download and install the updated printer drivers the next time they attempt to print to the printer.
