do u use cups as ur printing system also ?
the configuration seems bsd style... i use "printing=cups"
at smb.conf....

cups is really good, but i really have queue problems
with samba.... if i can not fix it, i must turn back
to use bsd style printing systems :(

i have five network printers connect to samba (no local printers)
jetdirect X 2
epson n1200c with nic
printer server nic X 2

Best Regards,
