RDP to office and Print at home

Have XP Pro at home and XP Pro in the office. When at home I want to RDP to the office and print on My Brother HL 2270DW at home. I selected all the "allow local devices and printers" and all other appropriate choices in my RDP options boxes on the home machine. Still no go.
I checked the event log on the work computer and it said "No Drivers for the Brother...., contact your Administrator" hate it when it says that, cause that's me. So I downloaded the proper drivers from Brother on the work machine, started the install and got to the options/choices of USB, Wireless or Network. I chose USB and unlike other Printers this one doesn't give the option to install without plugging in the USB. Then it rolled back without installing the drivers. I know this because I remoted in and saw the same message in the event log about no drivers found.
So the question is: how and where do I install the drivers on my work machine so that when I RDP from home it sees my brother and has the right drivers for the remote session so I can print at home?
