Windows Samba Problem


I have a wee-problem with Samba and sharing printers...

I'm trying to share a network printer on a linux server (Running Redhat 9.0) via Samba and Cups. I have annother linux box running Ubuntu that will print to it via samaba, but I have annother machine running Windows 2k that will not. I don't know if this is a driver problem or a config problem...

here's my smb.conf file...
[global]
workgroup = workgruop
hosts allow = all
load printers = yes
browseable = yes
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
encrypt passwords = yes
lock directory = /usr/local/samba/var/lock
interfaces = eth0
security = share
[print$]
comment = Printer Drivers
path = /etc/samba/printer
guest ok = no
browseable = yes
read only = yes
write list = user
[BigPrinter]
comment = HP Color Lazerjet 4550H
printable = yes
path = /var/spool/samba
public = yes
guest ok = yes
printer admin = user
[printers]
comment = All printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = no
public = yes
guest ok = no
writable = no
printable = yes
printer name = BigPrinter
printer admin = user

I'm clueless why it won't print

First thought, can the win2k machine browse to the samba machine at all? (\\machinename)

Yeah, the Windows 2k computer can see the machine, add the printer, but when it tries to print, nothing happens

Have you looked into the CUPS documentation to make sure it's allowing print jobs from other than Localhost?

I'm pritty sure CUPS is doing fine (since the localhost will print, and also the other linux box through Samba), but here's my cupsd.conf anyways...

ServerName PrintServer
ServerAdmin user@printserver

ErrorLog /var/log/cups/error_log
LogLevel error
MaxLogSize 0
MaxJobs 500
Printcap /etc/printcap

Port 631
Listen hostname:631
Port 443

<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From 192.168.40.*
</Location>

<Location /admin>
AuthType Basic
AuthClass System
Allow From 127.0.0.1
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
</Location>

I have a wee-hunch that "User lp" and "Goup sys" might be part of the problem (they're commented out right now), so if you have a clue, please do tell
