Printing problem

Hello, I have 1 samba and 2 windows Xp client. There are 1 Printer Epson and 1 printer samsung connected to the samba and share on network. 1 WinXp client can print on both printers but 1 client can print on samsung and cannot print on epson. After some test i see that there are queue print job from the client to printer epson, tried to delete and reconfigure the epson, i,m getting error message saying unable to delete while there are queue print jobs. my question is how to purge all the print jobs?? is the problem with the server or the client??

Sound mostly like a client problem. Try to disable and re-enable the printer on the XP client - sometimes it helps me in these situations. Try reinstalling the printer's driver also. I don't know if it will help you too but it's all I can think of.
