Problem with sharing printer with samba2.0.0.7

I'm not sure if it's a typo, or if you actually pasted your smb.conf file,
but you had the following:

    pubblic = yes

That should obviously say "public = yes"

Also, the spooling folder of your printer (in this case /var/spool/lpd/lp)
should be world writeable (when I'm lazy I just do a 'chmod +777') so that
the users can actually put their print jobs there to be spooled.

Hope this helps!

Dear everybody,
I have install the last version of samba but I have big problem for
printing on client.
When I try for printing in my client-NT I have the sequent message of error:
"Error during the process of printing : access deny !!!"
My smb.conf is:
    comment = HpLaserJet5P
    path = /var/spool/lpd/lp
    browseable = no
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
    guest ok = yes
    pubblic = yes
    writable = yes
    printable = yes

Thanks in advance for helping.
