Samba servers announce as printer servers

At work we have some servers running Samba. There aren't any printers
attached to them. I removed the [printers] share and set "load
printers=no" in the configuration file, but when I open the "browse
for printers" dialog on a Windows 2000 box the Samba servers always
appear in the list of available printer servers.

This is not a serious problem, but might confuse some of our users. Is
there any possibility to hide Samba from the "browse for printers"

At work we use Samba 2.0.10 and I get the same behavior with Samba
2.2.2 on my Laptop.

thank you for any help,

Of course there's no reason for it, it's just our policy.
