Add to DriverStore

Just wondering if anyone knows how to add to / manage the Driverstore / Driver cache?

As an example, you may have 6 monitors that a computer might connect to and you want the specific monitor driver to install when you connect one of the monitors to your computer. I'm thinking that you would add those 6 possible drivers to the cache and they would spring into action when the device was detected.

Currently those monitors will get a Generic PnP Monitor driver and i would like to improve that by having the named driver install.
