just tried to establish automatic Printer-Driver-Installation on Samba
2.2.0alpha2 (PRINTER_DRIVER2.txt). After following the
Installation-Steps under WINNT4, there are
4 new files (in <samba-dir>/printers/W32X86/2) on my samba-machine
(acting as a PDC).

But then I get the usual meaningless NT-Errormessage

"General protection-fault at adress..."

And I`m not able to use the printer...

Here`s my smb.conf:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = MEOME-AG.DE
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        domain admin group = @smbadmin
        domain admin users = root
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -g machines -c Machine -d
/dev/null -s /bin/false %m$ && /usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -a -m %m$
        logon script = scripts/%U.bat
        logon drive = u:
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 65
        guest account = ftp
        share modes = No
        nt acl support = no
        server string = Samba 2.2.0-alpha2 on HAL
        min passwd length = 6
        passwd program = /dev/null
        time server = true
        template homedir = /home/%U
        show add printer wizard = Yes
        read only = No
        create mask = 0700
        directory mask = 0700
        browseable = No
        locking = No
        oplocks = false
        path = /usr/local/samba/netlogon
        browseable = No
        path = /usr/local/samba/printers
        guest ok = no
        browseable = yes
        read only = yes
        write list = root
        comment = Default Printer (b/w)
        print command = /usr/bin/lpr -Plp -r %s
        printer = hp2100
        printing = BSD
        path = /tmp
        guest ok = Yes
        printable = Yes
        comment = Colorprinter
        print command = /usr/bin/lpr -Plpc -r %s
        printer = hp4500
        printing = BSD
        path = /tmp
        printable = Yes

Anybody out there, able to give me a direction to look at to solve my
