This is in reference to Odhiambo Washington's help request.  I too have
that same problem.  Well, I should say that I didn't last week.  I only
added a new printer to the network and everything is fine.  But, then
all of a sudden one of my other printers is doing the exact same thing
of OWashington's .  First I had that can't get to //bogus/printer  then
now I can print from the unix host, but the win98 client prints, it
seems to go to the printer (lights activity) but, then it disappears.
I only added printer to printcap and reinitialiazed.
Was there any real solutions?
  my /var/spool/samba is       rwxrwxrwx root root

my /var/spool/lpd/hplj is      rwxr-xr-x  root lp

thanks for any help.
