Printing Problems with Win95/Linux

On my Linux computer there is smbd running (Samba 2.0.4a). I share my
printer with several Windows machines. Printing is possible from NT
Machines but not from Win95. The Printer isn`t visible for the 95s. The
Windows machines connect via a guest account, no password is necessary. 
It didn`t work with Version 1.9.18p as well and I tried to set "encrypt
passwords = yes" - no difference.

Does anybody know a solution to this problem? 

Here`s my smb.conf:

   dead time = 10
   invalid users = root
   guest account = guest
   password level = 3
   browseable = yes
   status = yes
   debug level = 2
   read prediction = true
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   print command = lpr -r %s
   lpq command = lpq
   lprm command = lprm %j
   os level = 34
   security = share
   debug level = 3
   workgroup = MC

   comment = Hewlett Packard LaserJet 4MP
   user = guest
   path = /tmp
   writeable = no
   create mode = 0700 
   public = yes 
   printable = yes
