unable to print through Samba

I am attempting to print from XP to a printer attached to a PC running Fedora Core 1 using Cups. The printer is a BJ 100 and works fine when printing from Linux. When I try to use it from the Windows side however I see a message saying access denied unable to attach. The Linux logs say it is unable to print because the document-format is not supported. This is a simple text file printed from both wordpad and word. The printer is listed as a BJ 100 on both Linux and Windows.

What am I doing wrong??

Thanks -- That was it --- it was the settings in the cups files
