Samba won't communicate with CUPS


I am setting up a small home print server running Fedora 13 (no gui). I setup Samba to have 1 file share and 1 printer. I can access both just fine in Windows network. However when I try to print, nothing happens. I looked under Jobs in the Cups Web Interface and no job was ever created, so I suspect either Samba or CUPS isn't configured correctly. I am able to print a test page from CUPS directly.

smb.conf

Code:
[global]
	workgroup = WORKGROUP
	netbios name = CookHome
	server string = %h server (Samba, Fedora)

	domain master = yes
	local master = yes
	preferred master = yes
	wins support = yes
	os level = 70

	security = share
	map to guest = bad user
	client lanman auth = yes

	load printers = yes
	printing = cups
	printcap = cups
	printcap name = cups

[cookhome]
	comment = CookHome File Share
	path = /srv/samba/cookhome
	browsable = yes
	guest only = yes

[printers]
	comment = CookHome Printers
	path = /var/spool/samba
	browsable = yes
	printable = yes
	guest only = yes
	create mask = 0777
	use client driver = yes
cupsd.conf

1. Is your firewall allowing SAMBA ? Is SAMBA started?
2. Are you using the guest account?
