Permission of spool directory

It all depends on what spooler you are using...
for legacy LPR try setting chmod 1777 on spool directories - I have seen this
recommended in several places. setting the sticky bit make it impossible for
users to delete each others jobs...
I have looked at LPRng a bit and it seems to want 600 [LPRng used a slightly
different method of spooling that allows jobs to be sent by a process without
running as root...see their docs for more info...]
anyone else have ideas?

My samba is working but.......
I can share files and printers. Although printing is only possible after I
set the permission of the spool dir as follows:
chmod -R -g=wrx /var/spool/samba
After that printing from clients is possible
when restarting lpd it say's:
permissions of 'file name' are 0755 not 600 and it is changed accordingly
Then printing from a client is not possible
What has to be changed to set is right?
It must be something simple
Thanx in advantage
