Samba won't display printers for Windows PCs

I have a new install of SimplyMepis and have got Samba working to where I can see/read/write to folders from Win98 pc but cannot see any printers. I have a RedHat 7.2 box working perfectly with almost the same settings, and NOT using CUPS. On the Mepis box CUPS is running and I'm not sure if I want it to be/ how to remove it. I do not get any errors, the printers just don't show up...Any help would be appreciated!

Here is my smb.conf:

workgroup = MyWorkgroup
server string = Print-Server
hosts allow = 192.168.10. 192.168.0. 127.
printcap name = /etc/printcap
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 0
pam password change = yes
unix password sync = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
#interfaces =
local master = yes
os level = 33
domain master = no
preferred master = no
dns proxy = no
restrict anonymous = no
max protocol = NT
ldap ssl = No
server signing = Auto

comment = Home Directories
read only = no
valid users = %S
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
case sensitive = no
guest ok = yes
msdfs proxy = no

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = yes
printer name = Script-1-test
guest ok = yes
use client driver = yes

path = /var/lib/samba/printers
write list = @adm,root
inherit permissions = yes
guest ok = yes
case sensitive = no
