Problems with Intel Netport Printserver and Samba

Okay, again, I can print fine from linux, samba shows both printers as being 
available, winodws loads the printer drivers for both printers just fine. 
However when I print a windows test page to the laser printer (lp0) it ends 
up on the inkjet at (lp), if I add a printer at lp1 with same settings as lp0 
and try printing, the same thing happens... <sigh>   

This problem appears to be specifically a samba issue as printing directly 
from linux, print jobs end on the correct printers and printing otherwise 
works fine, however, when printing via samba any job sent to the secondary 
port on the printserver ends up somehow printing out on the first port.

This box is running Rh6.0 and Samba 2.0.3-8. The printserver is the Intel 
Netport Express PRO/100.

I am about at my wits end and ready to dump both printers and the printserver
out the window. Somebody HELP please!!! <whimper>
