Some things to understand. Linux to Linux printing has nothing to do with samba. This works with cups only installed. That is it.

The problem of any windoze system not printing to a samba server shared printer is the issue.

You implied you added the printer in windoze. Did you add it as a network printer from the windoze end? Before that will work you need the windoze print driver on the windoze system. This is the way to make a samba shared printer work in windbloze. If yes, then please post your /etc/samba/smb.conf file. Please also post the make and model of the printer in question.
