Samba Printserver - windows clients now spool before printing

I replaced a windows 2003 server with a debian linux server running samba 2.23 and I am having a problem with the sppoling of print jobs on the windows machines. I am using cups for the printers and all printers pring just fine. The only problem is that the windows machines, both 9X and 2000-XP, now spool the entire print jobs before they print. This is only a problem because this is an accountants office and they are using a program to print checks. Before the server replacement, the windows machine would get through creating about 3 to 5 checks and then it would start printing while it compiled the others. Now it compiles them all before printing. This causes a huge waste of time when there is 200 checks to be printed. Nothing besides the server port has changed on the clients. Here is my smb.conf file so what should be changed or added?

#======================= Global Settings =======================

passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
printing = cups
dns proxy = no
null passwords = yes
encrypt passwords = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
printcap name = cups
max log size = 1000
obey pam restrictions = yes
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\sp
assword:* %n\n
writeable = yes
security = user
server string = Debian 3.0 r1
workgroup = WORKGROUP
syslog = 0
guest ok = yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
load printers = yes
os level = 20

path = /home/shared
public = yes


path = /var/spool/samba
use client driver = yes
public = yes

Thanks for the help in advance!
