smbprint to NT

I cannot seem to make smbprint work to NT boxes, as a guest.  I've read
everything I can find in the documentation, archives, John Blair's book,
etc.  While I can print to a shared printer on an NT server from a Win95
or Win98 box, without a username or password, I can't make this work from
a Unix box.

Can anyone help me?  The best I have been able to do is a script:

  /usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient \\\\SERVER\\SERVICE -U $LOGNAME -P 1>>/tmp/logfile.log <<EOF
  printmode graphics
  print $1

This stops and asks for the user's password, and provided the user has an
account on the NT box, all is well.

Many thanks for any help!
