I don't personnaly see any errors in your config, though having a second entry in smb.conf for the exact printer seems off from my config. I still suggest using cups, samba ties right in to it. My other question is this: have you set up the users for samba through smbpasswd? Working with Vista in particular you should have user account authentication through smb accounts is going to be a requirement, at least in my experience.

Gryyphyn, out.
