Can't print from Windows 2000 to a Redhat printer

Can anybody help me I've set up a HP deskjet 930c printer on my Redhat9 box and it works fine. I Have managed to share it with Samba and I can view and have also managed to connect to it and download the appropriate drivers on my Win 2000 box.
When I print from my windows machine it shows a box saying printing and I get no error reports. I can also see it's connecting to the linux box by the switch link lights.
Problem is that there is just nothing coming from the printer and its showing no errors.
I ran lpq to show the print que but it's showing no activity. I also tried creating a raw print queue using 'lpadmin -p rawprint -v parallel:/dev/lp0 E' .Still nothing
Please please help it would be appreciated.
