Printing Options in smb.conf


I don't want a server to be a print server, can I just delete the entire Printing Options section out of smb.conf, or do I set load printers to no and delete cups options?

AFAIK you need to set load printers = no. I do not know if you also need to comment/delete the [printers] section too.

Thanks. I saw an article on google about having to set a bunch of other options, but they don't even exist in the default smb.conf file on the server, so I'm not sure since they aren't even listed in that file.
