In my previous post, I was looking for a way to set up the [print$]
drivers by hand from the linux side. The Samba-HOWTO-Collection does
provide some information on how to automatically set up the drivers for
Samba using an NT4 client, so presumably a W2K client can do this, too.
For lack of anything else to try, I thought I would give this a shot, but
there is an immediate logistic concern. According to the
The [print$] share should be set up with the following sub-directories:
|-W32X86 ; "Windows NT x86"
|-WIN40 ; "Windows 95/98"
|-W32ALPHA ; "Windows NT Alpha_AXP"
|-W32MIPS ; "Windows NT R4000"
|-W32PPC ; "Windows NT PowerPC"
hookay, what about for W2K? Also, is there anything magical about these
names, and finally, if I use W2K to set up the printer drivers on the
Samba server, will this also take care of the W98/ME machines? Speaking of
Win ME, does this use the same directory as W95/98?
