re sharing drives

I have been running a samba network at home with great success for several months.  I just recently wanted to do something different.  I wanted to map one of my windows 98 boxes to my samba server. I have tried several different ways including using swat.  I can see the machines but cannot see the shares.  I tried to map anyway(in case they are not browsable by Linux but still there[ they are there because I share them on my network to other win98 boxes]) and I still failed :(    

I also just created a printed share. A HP laserjet 4 which prints great in linux.  I can see it on my windows 98 boxes but when I print to it, it does nothing.  Not even an error.

Below you'll find my smb.conf any help would be greatly appreciated
