hello, i'm having serious problems with printing...

i have my printer set up and working on my redhat 7.1 box.  i also have
samba setup and working on it also and the [printers] section is working.
on my win2k machine, i double click on add printer.  then i select network
printer, select the proper printer over the network, install the proper
win2k driver (i dunno why this step is required), then hit finish.  all is
fine and good, all my users on the win2k machine can see the new networked
printer.  then i open a simple web page ( and try to print
it.  the printer on the linux box starts up, then spits out about 50 pages
of ascii garbage!  what is wrong?

thanks for the help,

P.S.  how do i stop a printing job in linux?  i  had to restart my computer
and pull the power on the printer 4 times before it finally stopped printing
all the garbage!

P.S.S.  the printer is a samsung ML-1210
