Sounds like the driver has not created its printer data.
You're serving the printer drivers from the Samba box right?
Change some setting on the samba printer like "page orientation"
and it will cause the driver to initialize itself.

Are you getting this on the Windows client?  Samba only supports
RAW printing for driver download.
