No, I mean that nt can print, using lpr, directly to the lpd daemon of
linux/unix, so instead of
nt --> samba --> lpd --> printer
you would use
nt --> lpd --> printer
You can enable tcp/ip printing by going control panel, network,
services; then, when you set up a printer, specify a tcpip port for that

The problem is that you simply changed a printer (hardware) and printing
stop working, so it's difficult to say what it's wrong in software,
maybe some printcap filter, but I don't use them so I don't know.
