Problem with samba 2.06 printing

    I have recently installed a fresh copy of samba 2.06 on a SUN
solaris 2.6 server. I am having problems with printing issue.  Windows
95 users just can receive the cover page only but not the content of the
file.  When I kill the samba process and restarted it.  It will print
out OK for the first two users.  Then it prints cover page only.  I also
have an issue with user who has a different user id between nis server
and windows NT.  I put the userid in the username map file.  When the
users map a drive to their home directories, it asks for the password.
After they type in their unix password, it said the password is
incorrect even if the user type it in correctly.  I have attached the
samba smb.conf.  I would appreciate any input to the above issues.

   printing = SYSV
   load printers = yes
   guest account = nobody
   username map = /opt/samba/lib/
   lock directory = /opt/samba/var/locks
   printcap file = /etc/printers.conf

   comment = Home Directories
   path = /home/%S
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   create mode = 0755

   printable = yes
   browseable = yes
   comment = The printer in 42c21
   path = /var/tmp
   read only = yes
   validusers =
   guest ok = yes

   comment = Temporary file space
   path = /var/tmp
   read only = yes
   public = yes
