Please read the printing HOWTO in the PDF file.  The share 
listing is provided for older (non-NT clients) and the Printers
folder is for NT clients.  While it is possible for these two
listings to be different on an NT print server, it is not the 
case on a Samba server.  The only printers known about by 
Samba are by definition "shared".
