NT printing problem

I've got Samba 2.0.3 running on my Linux box.
Marvin is the samba server.  Bugs is the NT box.

Attached is the relevant part of my smb.conf file.  I removed several parts
from what's attached to save bandwidth.  What you see is simply the part
that pertains to my printer.

I can't print to the DeskJet printer.  The printer appears in my network
neighborhood, but I just can't get to it.  I print, and no error is reported
to NT, but the job simply disappears.

Nothing comes out of my printer - no lights blink on it....nothing!

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help.
