Debug a little.  Try printing a PostScript file directly from a DOS
window on your 'doze box.

  C:\>copy 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'

That should give you a better idea which component of your spooling
system is at fault.
