SAMBA on IRIX

I have just installed Samba onto our IRIX network with the aim of
solving two problems:
1. Allow printing from IRIX to NT; and
2. Use the WINS server under NT to do away with /etc/hosts.
I am not very familiar with Samba but from what I have read today I must
use the smbclient command in this kind of format: 'smbclient
\\server\printer <\\\\server\\printer> -PN'. This produces an ftp like
prompt which is not what I want to do. I need to effectively "map" (I
know that is the wrong word) an NT printer to IRIX.
I modified 'smb.conf' to set our NT server as the WINS server but that
does not seem to have worked.
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = NT-DOMAIN
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = IRIX
# WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client
# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but
wins server = NT-SERVER

comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = no
public = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
This is a trimmed down smb.conf file.
