Don't think so until JF get the \PIPe\spoolss code 
done.  The current method is to cause the Samba box
to thunk back down to LanManager for this one call 
(connecting to the printer).  Now that I think about it, 
have you looked at the printers.def file stuff.
Don't think it will work with NT clients (even though 
connecting using LanMan calls) but you can try.  Any 
other suggestions.
