smbprint and Solaris 2.7

I have Samba installed on a Solaris 2.7 system. I wish to offer my users the
capability to print from Unix to their private printer attached to their PC
running Windows 98/NT/2000. Following these directions, "7.2.2 System V
printers", in http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/samba/chapter/book/ch07_02.html, I
created a printer definition for the PC-attached printer. Also, from the PC I
defined the printer to be shared.
When I print a file, with the aid of debugging statements in smbprint.sysv, I
see the script repeatedly executing the smbclient statements, as if the driver
is being called repeatedly to print the file. The file never prints and remains
in this state until I "cancel" it.
Any help/ideas would be appreciated!
Thanks, in advance, for your help.
