problem starting samba daemon

Hi All,
I have installed Samba-1.9.18 on my unix server (Solaris 2.6) to allow
Win98 clients to share the printer on the unix server.  As instructed, I
put the startup script, S87Samba, in /etc/rc2.d.
My problem is that whenever the server is rebooted, the daemon APPEARS to
be running correctly, i.e. ps shows that it is running with the proper
parameters, but clients can't print.
However, if I kill the daemon process and restart it, (/etc/rc2.d/S87Samba
everything works fine.  The ps looks identical in both cases.
Do I need to put S87Samba somewhere else?  (I tried /etc/rc3.d with the
same result.)
Any help would be appreciated.
