Samba, printers and mandrake 9.1

Hello you all

I have mandrake 9.1 installed and have set it up as a samba server.
I am able to assign login scripts and successfully loggin to samba from a win98 box. I will eventualy have 50 win98 boxes connected to the Local Network and some printers that are network.

I had posted a thread that even though i was able to map to the samba drives from windows - I am not able to see samba in the network neighbourhood - I could not figure it out even after all the replies.
Now i am trying to add network printers connected via network cable.
I have set the ip address of the printer to be in the same range
linux -
printer -
win98 boxes - -

I have added the printer using webmin in linux and cups - it asks for a port however - and i'm not sure what to type??????

I have added the printer component to smb.conf - but since i am not able to see anything in the network neighbourhood on windows - i can't do an add printer in win98.

Please help
