I am using HEAD Branch from cvs. I am installing print drivers for NT. I
am having a few problems.

I am connecting to the samba server as a user which maps to root on
samba server.

I can install certain print drivers but not all.

I installed a HP laserjet 5 si/mx PS driver on samba server and I can
access the driver from other NT machine connecting to samba as a guest.

I tried to install some other printer drivers like HP laserjet 4M/MP
Postscript and Xerox N24/N32 PS2, the drivers got installed (atleast
that's what I belive). I can see the drivers in the drop down list of
drivers. But from the clients, when I try to connect to those printers,
I get a message that the server does not have a suitable driver
installed and I need to install the driver locally. Also from the
machine from where, I am installing the drivers, If I try to see the
properties of that printer, I get that driver for that printer are not
installed only, spool properties will be shown. And the properties
window pops up without the device setting tab. The property window shows
the correct driver name however.

Please let me know, what is it that I am doing wrong?
