I believe it is samba,  Since I can print from unix with the "lpr
-Pcheapptr test.txt"

here is printcap:
# section

here is smb.conf:
  *note I just have all printers specified.
   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
   public = yes
   guest ok = no
   writable = no
   printable = yes
   create mode = 0700
   print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r -P%p %s
#   print command = /usr/bin/cp %s /tmp/temp.txt
   lpq command = /usr/bin/lpq -P%p
   lprm command = /usr/bin/lprm -P%p %j

this is /var/spool/samba
drwxrwxrwx   2 root     lp           1024 Oct 18 11:20 /var/spool/samba/

and this is the lpd
 drwxrwxrwt   2 root     lp           2048 Oct 18 09:39 /var/spool/lpd3/

yes those users are at the door.  I just can't see what is not right.  I
did not change anything except added a new printer.  I did reboot the
system, so reinitialization took place.  The old printer are hplj6mp and
the new one I added is a hplj2100tn printer.
