[Samba] Problem with Multiple Printers, Multiple Ways to Print

I have a problem setting up Samba so that my mixed Windows network users can
print to my various printers.

One printer requires that it be sent it's data in binary format which
requires using a print command.  The other printers will not work if a print
command is used (binary or no binary).

I am on a Redhat Linux 7.2 platform using LPRng, Samba 2.2.3a-4.  In my
smb.conf file, I have the following:

printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
printing = lprng

path = /var/spool/samba
printable = yes
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
writable = no

How can I configure Samba to send binary to one printer and do normal
printing to my other printers?

Thanks in advance.
