what should i do with LINUX?????

well i have this problem thats been lingering 4 weeks and my employers arent impressed bout it.

I have installed SuSE 8.0 then Samba 2.2.3a but I can see my Network printer in my Windows server, can test print from the Linux server, but cant print from the Windows server via Samba.

Keep giving me error message:

smbd/service: c:make_connection
...... couldn`t find service

have spent days on Google, cant find resonable help.

If that drags longer, am gonna giv it up and concentrate on my WINDOWS

Well can you provide any more details, how your setup, possibly giving the portion of your smb.conf file where your sharing out the printer, etc? Were as clueless as your and can't guess what the problem is exactly.
