Samba Printing

Greetings again,

I'm trying to set up Samba for printing following the O'Reilly Samba
book and RedHat's own installation book.  I've set up 2 network printers
on HP JetDirect servers, and can print to either of them from the
Printtool in Gnome perfectly well.  If I print from the command line I
can print to either, but if I printed from a Windows 95 client, despite
using either printer, I could only print to lj5mp.  Now I can't print to
either and I don't know what I've done.  

The shares are as follows:

	comment = HP 4050TN
        printable = yes
        print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r %s
        printer = lp0
        printing = BSD
        path = /usr/spool/samba/lp0
        browsable = yes
        public = yes
	guest ok = yes

	comment = HP LaserJet 5MP
        printable = yes
	print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r %s
	printer = lp
	path = /usr/spool/samba/lp
	printing = BSD
	guest ok = yes

Guest is set to nobody.  What should the printer spool permissions and
ownweships be?  It was all working so well .....
