Plotter confusion/ Windows system printer

I am having an issue with a plotter configuration. We have 2 plotters here, with installing 2006 the HP 500 is recognized in layouts created in 2004 and seems to work fine. With the KIP 2000 plotter it is a problem, I get this AutoCAD warning, that I have put in the attachment. I am able to plot to this plotter, but it is not a smooth process, I get the warning everytime i plot to it and I get a plot stamp upsidedown with the plot stamp turned off, something is completely out of whack and I am not sure how to correct this. I have gone through the whole process in add a plotter wizard and am clueless. Do I need to install the driver for this plotter on my computer? All of the plotters are on a server and the only way I know how to find them through add a plotter wizard is to check system printer. Any help would be appreciated.
