	This sounds similiar to the problem I have had with 2.0.7 with trying 
to automate installs of printer drivers for printers NOT in the windows 98
"built in" driver list (like 4000 or 4500 printers - worked fine for old
LJ 4 or LJ 5SI.)  I asked in the news group and never received any response on 
this issue.  Old printers work great, new ones don't work.  Made us very sad.

	I wondered if it was windows wierdness, or Samba weirdness.
