I've had a number of people tell me to change
browseable = no
browseable = yes
Now, when it is "no" and I look at the fileserver using the Network
Neighborhood on NT, I see a folder called "Printers", which is empty.
When I change it to "yes", I then see a new printer called "Printer" as
well as a folder called "Printer".
So I don't think that this is the solution.
