sharing printer with win 98

i configured a samba server on a linux box to share file and printers, this samba server has a printer connected to it,
there is no problem when accessing this printer from win 2000 or win xp, but the problem when i want to configure it in win 98
i followed these steps:
1) from Network neighborhood i went to the linux samba server
2) after i opened it i didn't find the printer as i see it in win2000, but i found folders (users,groups, and pdf)

Since moving to Samba 3, I have also experienced flakiness when printing on Win98 clients over SMB. I resolved this by installing Windows IPP printing software and pringing directly to CUPS from these systems.
