Angry Samba printing issues with Minolta PagePro 1250W on Mandrake 9.2 with WinXP server

I've been trying fruitlessly to get my Samba-shared Minolta PagePro 1250W (via a RedMon+GhostScript adapter - it looks like an HP LaserJet 4100 PS to the outside worls) working on this box. I've followed the directions in TLDP's "Debian and Windows Shared Printing" HOWTO, section 3 (can't post the URL - not enough posts), which worked on my old SuSE 8.2 box. I'm using the PPD from, and I've tried the HP LaserJet 4100 Series v.3010.107 driver included with Mandrake. Here's the command sequence I entered (some stuff obfuscated):
smbclient -I -L tom-u1dmruu1mgp -U Eric
When prompted for my password, I gave it, and got this:
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[MSHOME] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
        IPC$           IPC       Remote IPC

        print$         Disk      Printer Drivers
        hpdeskje       Printer   hp deskjet 5550 series
        MINOLTA        Printer   Minolta Adaptor

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------
        MSHOME               TOM-U1DMRUU1MGP
I then entered the following sequence of commands, being asked for my root password several times:
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p Minolta -v smb://Eric:*****@ -P /home/bhtooefr/HP-LaserJet_4100-Postscript.ppd
/usr/bin/enable Minolta
/usr/sbin/accept Minolta
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -d Minolta
After this, I went to the page for the printer, and printed a test page. I got this error message: cli_session_request() failed...

I'd upload some screenshots, but I don't know how to use rz/sz over SSH (or period) on Linux, and since I only paid $1 for my SDF account, not $36, I can't use FTP. I'll work on switching the driver, and reporting the results there, though.

It magically started working after an update to 10 Community. Anyway, the printer got changed to a local printer, and I'm using min12xxw, which is based on the driver that jarno linked to.
