Print Jobs Get Lost in CUPS Spool


I'm trying to setup a simple print server for three network printers. What started out as a small project has now turned into a two day hair-pulling contest. This is Redhat 9, Samba 3, and CUPS 1.1.17. I've got all the printers captured under CUPS using JetDirect for the HP and LPD for the two Epson 980N. All three printers are working from Redhat and I can see and connect to each of the with an XP machine. When I try to print, the XP box sends the job to CUPS and it CUPS reports it's done. However, it has not printed and is sitting in /var/spool/cups/.

I've been trying everything to make this work (hence the really messy smb.conf file I'm putting in presently) and it just does not want to print. I've removed the comments in mime.types and mime.convs, and I've done everything else I can think of (or read about), so if anyone can help, PLEASE!

Here's the info:

smb.conf
Code:
[printers]
   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   printable = yes
   public = yes
   create mode = 0700
   print command = lpr -P %p -o raw %s -r
   lpq command = lpstat -o %p
   lprm command = cancel %p-%j
   use client driver = Yes
cupsd.conf
Code:
<Location /printers/LaserJet4050>
