Debug/error codes

I know in some ways the answer is RTFM, but I'm not even sure which docs to 
read or where they are.

I've posted about my printing problem before (Win2k SP2 won't print to my 
Linux server printer), and even though I've had some suggestions, nothing 
has worked (after a solid week of trying combinations in smb.conf, I'm 
close to having to drop Linux and go to a complete Windoze LAN, instead of 
eventually being able to go all Linux).

I changed the log level in smb.conf and have been reading error 
messages.  I think some of the lines are truncated, but I need to know what 
some errors mean and I can't find documentation anywhere on my system or on telling me where to find meanings of error messages and codes.

My Win2k (SP2) boxes cannot print (one can print test pages, but nothing 
else) (I get "Unable to create a print job"), and I cannot read the printer 
queue from Win2k (unable to connect).  I'm using Samba 2.2.1a with Cups 
1.1.12 on an EpsonC60, but I've replaced the print command with a copy 
command while I'm testing.

Samba seems to be rejecting the requests from the Win2k machines and I 
can't see why.  The file shares work and the security is the same for 
them.  I've set permissions on the spool directory for all to 
read/write.  When I try to print, a log level of 5 or more gives me :

[2001/11/26 23:03:29, 3] lib/util_seaccess.c:se_access_check(242)
   se_access_check: also S-1-5-11
[2001/11/26 23:03:29, 5] lib/util_seaccess.c:se_access_check(300)
   se_access_check: access (c000c) denied.
[2001/11/26 23:03:29, 4] printing/nt_printing.c:print_access_check(3410)
   access check was FAILURE
[2001/11/26 23:03:29, 3] 
   access DENIED for printer open

(of course, this is only part -- the entry before the denials and the denials).

I've been trying to find soemplace that will tell me what these messages 
mean and why Samba is rejecting access when it does not reject access to 
file shares.

Any suggestions for error info or any comments on what these mean?
