Unhappy Service <printername> is flagged unavailable

WARNING No path in service <printername> - Making it unavailable!

I'm runing a CentOS 5.4 server.
I have a Windows NT Domain.
My CentOS server is in the Domain, Samba works fine (both ways).
I haven't needed to print from the CentOS box until now.
I have a shared HP LaserJet 2100 printer connected to a workstation and shared. Everyone can use it
I'm not using SELinux

I want to be able to print from the CentOS box to that printer.

I used Webmin to set it up, but no joy so I've searched the entire web for any info to do it manually but I'm stuck.

My smb.conf file looks OK. It's just the printer.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I am far from an expert in this area, but my gut feeling is that you need a CUPS plug in to work with your Samba. Try searching for those terms combined and see if it provides you with any insight.

Sorry, I wish I could be of more help.
