When the world was young, Chakaphan Supacharuwong carved some runes

It sounds like the CR/LF thing.  If so, it's not a problem in 
smb.conf, but in your printer setup.  What happens when you print a 
text file from the RedHat side?  Did you setup the printer with the 
RedHat printtool (in control-panel)?  If so, did you check the 
option "fix stair-step text" for the input filter for the desired 
printer?  If you use this method to setup an SMB printer under 
RedHat, it should work fine.
