Yes. "Belt and suspenders".

I just did a fresh install of Win2kPro SP2 to a client onto a bare disk
(vmware, actually. I'm a unix user, after all.)
I just got the 2.2 latest from CVS today. I built it. I deleted all
the files in /var/samba/locks and all the files in /var/samba/printers/W*.
I followed the instructions carefully on the uploading of the Win2k drivers.
I made sure I canceled out of the initial wizard attempt and I installed
the drivers to the server first. I used the drivers that came with
Win2kPro SP2. I then setup the duplexer on the server. I double clicked
on the printer. It installed the drivers automatically. I then went
to print something and the Layout tab does not show two-sided.
I used the drivers that came with Win2kPro SP2. I noticed that the drivers
were placed in /var/samba/printers/W32X86/3/. I thought that Win2k and
WinNT drivers went into .../Win40?
If I go to Settings/Printers and select the printer and check the properties,
it shows an installed duplexer. If I select the "Printing Preferences" button
it shows a window with a Layout tab. That Layout tab has choices for
two-sided. Setting it to two-sided does not work. It accepted it. I then
went to print a document and the document printing dialog had no two-sided
choices under the Layout tab. The document was printed one sided. Going
back to the Settings/Printers/.../Printing Preferences/Layout still
showed two-sided was selected as the default.
I'm stumped. It really looks like all the problems are on the client,
but we have about 50 Win2k clients with the same problem.

Better yet. I deleted the client. I used the drivers as installed on
the new client.
