Exclamation Linux Print Server for Windows Clients

Hey all...

The task has come of me to setup a test linux print server that feeds off to windows clients. Now since it's a management thing, they want it all easy. They want it where the driver will be pushed to the client and tada it works. I have setup the printers in my Red Hat AS3 box and have samba working. I can see the printers from a windows box but when i print it won't print anything to them. Can anyone show me a sample smb.conf and other config files needed so that i can A. Have a linux print server on red hat as3, B. push out drivers, C. help me!!!!

I have all the stuff i need , Samba, Cups, and a few ppd files for the printer descriptions but i know i'm missing more stuff. Maybe a driver directory. If someone could point me in the right way i would really appreciate it.

Thanks to all that help
