There was a slight omission in the printing chapter of the 
howto collection in the 2.2.0 release.  My fault entirely.
In order to use the APW from a Windows NT/2000 client,
you must also define a 'add printer command' in smb.conf.
I have updated the Samba-HOWTO-Collection and the latest version 
will always be available onthe "Documentation" page
on http://samba.org/ and mirrors (starting in about an hour).

Cheers, jerry
