"Parameter is incorrect"

I set up a new printer on my Linux box, an Epson Stylus Color 740.  I
had previously been using an EPson Stylus Color IIs.  I got the printer
working nicely in Linux, but I can not print to the printers I set up in
/etc/printcap via samba from NT anymore.  I.e., it worked with the IIs,
but not with the 740.  I didn't change anything in smb.conf.

NT lets me install the printers via samba, but not print to them.  It
always returns a message that "The parameter is incorrect".  Is there
any way to find out what parameter it's barfing on, and how to fix it?  

I checked the system and samba logs, and there's nothing there about

I have samba 2.0.5, NT WS 4.0, SP5, and the Epson printer
drivers/software.  I'm kinda wondering if the Epson software is getting
in the way, but it won't let me install the drivers without installing
the software.  However, if I could massage the parameters samba receives
a little, I might be able to get it to work...if I knew how to capture
the parameters.
