	No, you need to debug the connection from
	the Windows 200 to Samba.

	Have a look at chapter 7 section 7.1.5 in
	the copy of Using Samba that came with
	your distribution (I hope!), or

	Basically you need to create a dummy printer,
	have the win2k machine send a job to it, and
	see what it did by making the print command
	report it's actions to you, as shown in the book.

	We are interested in what happens: we haven't seen
	that many printing problems yet with Windows 2000.
