samba + cups printing from winxp..


i've been trying samba printing for long time..
i can see linux samba share directory from windows
and the window even see my printer.
i added the printer
and installed driver locally
if i try to print something from windows, my printer makes the noise which the printer makes before it actually prints.

so i guess i 'm almost there.
it just doesn't print anything

what am i missing?
thank you
