Samba and CUPS

Sirs, I have a Linunx Mandrake 8.0 box with Samba and CUPS installed. It
seems that the SMB/NMB service starts before the CUPS service, so my
printers are not served inmediatelly.
I must manually stop and start the Samba service in order for it to "see"
the printers CUPS is making available.

Why is this behavior?
How can I correct it?

Many thanks,
