Printer: Access denied, unable to connect

I have a Deskjet 690C connected to my machine running RH7.1 + linux 2.4.13
+ samba 2.2.2 installed from RPM.
I have setup the printer with RH's printconf-gui as a local printer. In
local use it works fine.
I have the following in my /etc/samba/smb.conf:
security = share
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
path = /var/spool/lpd
printable = yes
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
Now, on a Win2kPro box I could do Settings -> Printers -> Add Printer and
choose the Samba printer share "deskjet" and install a driver for it.
I see the share "deskjet" as a share on my Samba box KARPALO. If I click
"open" I get the Printer's window open, but it tells me:
"deskjet on KARPALO Access denied, unable to connect"
That is a bit confusing as I'm using share level security and the printers
share is guest ok, browseable, printable and writeable?
Now I wonder if the problem is not with win2k talking to samba but samba
talking to lpd -- do I have to modify some permissions somewhere to let
samba print to my printer? The printconf-gui did not have any security
related options to be set and I do not know anything about how my linux
box controls who is permitted to print something and who is not.
Any help appreciated,
