How to use vbscript to install laserjet 8100 w/duplex & added memory

I found a vbscript to install a tcp/ip port and setup several printers for my HP8100 laserjet (E.g. HP_8100_Flip, HP_8100_Side2Side, HP_8100_OneSide). But I can't figure out how to use vbscript to tell the installed printers:
1. That it has 32 meg of memory installed;
2. That the duplex unit (for 2 sided printing) is installed;
3. That the HP_8100_Flip printer should flip the pages using the long side, etc.

Does anyone know where I could find info about how to make those settings using vbscript?

Creat a print queue on a server with all the information needed for you're printers and just add it with you're script.
