Papersizes with Samba 2.2.0 and Win2k.

Thank you, Stan.

Your answer might point to a solution. But... iirc, I don't have an 
apsfilter. I print with the Windows drivers directly into the lpr. So 
somewhere in that chain it has to be possible to set papersizes =P
I don't know of any smb settings, nor of any lprng settings, where I can 
tell the printers (or the queues), what paper is available.

Anyone having similar problems?
