Okay, here is what we came up with

If your using a UNIX print server running samba 2.2.1a then make sure you
have your server logged into the root console. THis sounds crayz i know.
BUt when we have the server sitting at the root console (in solaris 8) all
our prinnting runs find, other wise we have issues. I all so have the
problem with access denied messages, however it still prints.

this is our printers section

	guest ok = yes
	path = /usr/spool/samba
	browseable = yes
	read only = yes
	printable = yes
	write list = @ntadmin, root

good luck all, its a real pain in the a$$
