Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I ment that I installed the printerhardware in the YAST2 Configurationutility which is unique to the SuSE Linux distibution. I guess other Distris. have other tools like this.
When I startet the hardwaredetection the system says:
OKI Data OKI 610ex on queu lp installed. Printingqueue lp (or something in that way).
After that I started my Webbrowser and used webmin to vreate the printing share. I told the system that I am printing with cups and chose a CUPS printer driver.
In the field spool directory I typed in the "/var/spool/lpd" directory.
After that I changed to the directory "/var/spool" and made a "chmod 777 lpd" (everything as root in the console, of course).
Restarted samba via webmin and everything worked.
The directory you are using does exist ?
(Different distrib. have sometimes different dirs.)
Did you do the chmod 777 on that dir ?
My Printershare looks now like the following lines:
printer = lp
printable = yes
writeable = no
public = yes
path = /var/spool/lp
Looks a littel bit different to yours. If you make some changes so that it is suiteable for your configuration it may work (hopefully).
