sharing a printer for windows boxes

good evening to all,

i have a fedora core4 printer server on a windows xp lan.all i want to do is to share a printer attached on the fedora box.but i want to control tha printing jobs with a password prompt.i have so far succesfully installed the printer and i can install it from a client by using the appropriate NT drivers of course.all of my windows boxes have the same user/pass and the server has only the root account.the only time i come up with a login prompt is when i try to connect to the printer(add printer from a windows box).but i need to have a password(or login) prompt every time i try to print.
can neone provide me with a solution ?

ty in advance.

It does this because windows caches network passwords. I'm not sure if you can stop it.
