share name not found Windows Samba printer CUPS

I have Slack 10, with CUPS, and Samba, and I am trying to install a Samba printer on Windows 98.

When I browse from Windows, I see all shares, including \\Penti\dj. Right click, and I get the option "Install". Install, and I get the message "share name not found".

Does anyone have a clue?

I also found that the user's login directory is not visible in the Network Neighborhood -> Penti

I see all other shares, but not this one. Moreover, trying to access it gives the same message: share name not found
