Question Samba and windows printer shares...

I'm having a problem accessing shared printers that reside on a windows milennium machine with my linux box. I'm running redhat9 and have all the samba components installed and running, however I cannot see any shared microsoft resources at all. I verified all the shares and share names but have found nothing wrong... any ideas on what i might be missing?

go the HOW-TO SAMBA Collection (you can find it through SWAT or on the net) there you'll find an easy tutorial of how to configure your windows printer through samba... do it through CUPS ok? in the index look for Print System (or something like that) and look for windows printers.... it will explain how to use cups and samba to configure your printer
