I have been using samba for serveral months with gret success.  I have even gone so far as to just pick up a older laser printer off a friend of mine. I installed in in linux mandrake it work great so I set it up on my samba network.  Now in win 9X when I go to add printer (it is there) it says I have the wrong driver loaded and asks to install the right one (this I do, cuae if I don't it exits) and all goes right (so I thought).  Now when I print it says its printig on the win9X box but nothing ever comes across the network.  The wierd thing is that there is no error posted.  Win9x thinks all went well ?  below is my smb.conf any help trouble shooting this would be great.
