HP Deskjet doesn't print

i am new with samba and try since 5 days to let my HPDeskjet 690c
print under NT 4.0 with a LINUX samba server.
I work with SuSE 6.2.
Printing with Linux / KDE /Staroffice is no problem.
the spool directory from smb.conf (/var/spool/lpd) i set
with chmod 777 writeable.
with KLpq / Klp / lpq i see the document incoming and outgoing,
but nothing happens!!!
what do i make wrong / what can I try?
does anybody has a similar configuration and a very easy possibility
to test the printer?
please help. 
the printcap file was set automatically with YAST and should be ok.
here my very simple smb.conf:

   workgroup = Munnerem
   guest account = nobody
   keep alive = 30
   os level = 32

  security = server
  password server =
  encrypt passwords = yes

   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes

   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   map to guest = Bad User
   interfaces =
   wins support = no

   comment = All Printers
   browseable = no
   printable = yes
   public = no
   read only = yes
   create mode = 0777
   print ok = yes
   guest ok = yes
   directory = /var/spool/lpd
;   print command = /usr/bin/lpr -Plp

thanks a lot, berthold
