Thanks joel.

do you mean that samba do not support 2 way comms for the printer 
to pc ? 

I have this scenerio , 

On Win98 print to linux samba printer 
Using Fineprint both single side and doubleside printing works 

On Win2k SP1 . if i remember correctly, 
printing to the same linux samba printer
only single side printing works ... 
fine print crash when printing on the 2nd page.. 

PS . i encounter this scenerio a long time ago using redhat 7.0
i am setting up my samba from scratch again with win2k sp2 this time.

is there any way solve the problem ?

IF fine print uses PC to printer and printer to PC communication, it won't
work with samba
