Debug a little. Try printing a PostScript file directly from a DOS
window on your 'doze box.
C:\>copy test.ps lpt1:
Also, if you're going through a Unix print spooling subsystem, try
instead using smbclient directly:
$ smbclient //doze/canon -W wkgrp -U user%passwd -P -c 'print test.ps'
That should give you a better idea which component of your spooling
system is at fault.
