The question is: how do I share the Win98 printer through Samba so it's 
visible - would prefer it being visible from the Win98 machine, but I'll 
settle for through SAMBA if need be.
Not trying to share the burner itself, just hd space reserve for it so 
people can put their files on my system remotely then come over and burn 
the CD's.
