ok. this works.  Still has one glitch with Windows NT 4.0 clients.
The client never sets an assigned port for the local printer.
When you look at the printer properties and select the port
tab, NT 4 complains that you must select at least one port.
Of course, if you do then the printer quits working because
you selected a port and the jobs are never sent to the samba printer.

btw...Win2k doesn't care that there is no port assigned.

cheers, jerry
