The message below is from a friend in Germany.

There must be a way to distinguish printers vs. disks, since smbclient can
tell the difference.

$ smbclient -L zathras
Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=

	Sharename      Type      Comment
	---------      ----      -------
	HOME           Disk      User Files
	D              Disk      D drive
	C              Disk      C drive
	PRINTER$       Disk      
	HP560C         Printer   HP Deskjet 560 C Color Printer
	IPC$           IPC       Remote Inter Process Communication

The above is on my home network, with node Zathras being a W/95 box with a
single printer attached.

Curious.  I figure it's worth knowing how it's done.
