I've got a machine running SCO (Release 5.0) and am running samba version
2.03 (only version I could find already compiled for SCO).

My problem is when I print to a printer connected to WIN95/WIN98/NT machines
it occasionally loses it's mind.  1-10 page documents print no problem.
When I try to print a >30 page document it will (once in a while) stop after
X many pages.  No error messages.  Just acts likes it's done.

I can reprint it again and it will normally print (although sometimes it
will do the same thing again then print fine the next time).

Any ideas?

(edited version of smb.conf below)
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
keep alive = 900   (played with this but it hasn't helped any)

  path = /var/spool/samba
  browseable = no
  guest only = yes
  guest ok = yes
  guest account = nobody
  writeable = no
  printable = yes

thanks in advance for any possible help!!!!
