Well that is what puzzles me.. I don't know what causes it to ask for
a password.. I've set up printers from NT with sambas before version 2
with pretty similar setups and never encountered this problem before..
if the smbpassword for the account you use to print is the same as the
password you use to log into NT with it shouldn't
prompt for a password.

you can use other parallel ports up to lpt4 I believe..
