I had a similar problem on win2k, the fix was to install sp2.
Also make sure the spool directory has the correct permissions for your users.

Subject: [Samba] samba printer on FreeBSD not accessible to NT

I have FreeBSD 4.5 and samba working fine, and a hp 952c, attached via 
port on the FreeBSD box, working fine, on the FreeBSD box.
My smb.conf is set up to share the hp printer, as follows -
workgroup = SIMDOM 
server string = Chip's second PC 
log file = /var/log/log.%m 
max log size = 50 
security = domain 
password server = simrad_1, simrad_2 
encrypt passwords = yes 
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 
path = / 
wins server = 
null passwords = yes 
remote announce = 
default = Chip's second PC 
dns proxy = no 
protocol = NT1 
netbios name = cwiegand2 
name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast 
load printers = yes 
printcap = /etc/printcap 
guest account = chip 
print command = lpr -r -P%p %s 
printing = bsd
comment = HP 952C 
path = /var/spool/samba 
browseable = no 
guest ok = yes 
writeable = no 
printable = yes 
print ok = yes 
public = yes
Now, I know I don't need all of that stuff, I was just trying everything I 
could to get this to
work. I used apsfilter to set up the printer initially, and it prints fine 
from fbsd apps. When 
I set up NT to print to it I get Access Denied, Unable to Connect when I 
click on the print
device icon. Do I need to change the permissions somewhere, on the fbsd 
box? (I am 
able to map a drive from the nt box to the fbsd box and copy and write 
files to the bsd box
from the nt box.)
