problem with CUPS and samba


I'm trying to print to a Windows printer on my local network - it seems to be set up properly except when I try to print a test page from localhost:631, I am taken to -
http://linux.ucla.edu/pipermail/linux/2003-April.txt
I don't understand.

12:35 edit
I've just deleted the printer, updated CUPS and samba and then added the printer. Same problem. An identical set up on a Debian laptop presented no problems. Is it a SuSE issue?

Right. I got mad. SuSE 8.2 has now gone from my laptop. Adios!! I'm going to stick debian on it --- if the same thing happens again, I'll give up the idea of ever printing to a Windows printer from my laptop.

Hmmm! Interesting. No problems with Debian Testing. Anyone else had problems like this with SuSE 8.2?
