Question on printer share comments

I've got this section of my Samba (v2.2.1a, on Linux):

   comment = Network Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   create mask = 0700
   guest ok = Yes
   print ok = Yes
   browseable = No

I have 2 printers attached to my server machine, both of which are working 

I would like to have more descriptive comments for each printer.  (Comments 
are current shown as the printer name found in the printcap file, e.g. 
"lp".)  Is it possible to modify the Comment for a given printer share 
given that they are not defined individually?
