thanks for Your answer. First I tried to install the HP Laserjet 2100
Driver from a Windows 2000 Client onto the Samba-Server. This didn't
work at all - no files in print$ and an errormessage on the Windows box.
Then I installed Vmware with a Windows NT 4.0 Guest Operatingsystem
(because I don`t have any more machines...). Here I managed to get files
share. There`s now a directory "2" with the following files in it:
HPPCL.DLL RASDD.DLL RASDDUI.DLL RASDDUI.HLP
Unfortunately these drivers are for a HP Laserjet 2000, because there
ain't any drivers for the 2100 on the NT-CD. But this shouldn`t cause
the problems I had...
Do You need any further information?
