[Samba] "Denied Access" when using APW?????? HELP!!!!

Nope I just checked and the permissions on the printcap are set such that
root and the group printadm are able to read, write, and execute them.  My
user is both in the printadm group and is in the samba admin list in
smb.conf.  Looking at the logs I get every indication that I am properly
mapping to root when I come through samba.

    Yes I did realize that I could create the printer manually and the us
rpcclient to attach the driver.  However I'm trying to build this up so that
our normal IT manager can pick it up and manage it with minimum effort.
Seeing as he is used to Windows NT, (if at all possible) for him to be able
to use the Windows interfaces to manage this box.

    On a different note, after I manually created and attached the drivers,
I found that when I connect to the printer from Windows and try to open the
properties menu for this printer a protection fault.  This is an HP CP1700
printer.  When I use client side drivers, everything works fine.  Why would
putting the drivers onto the server make such a difference?

Thanks for the help.
