[Samba] Samba printers published in AD?....folders too!

In the AD Users and Computers MMC when I right click on any of the 
objects I don not see a "publish downlevel printer" option. I tried a 
couple other MMC snap-ins and did not see this option. Which one did you 
find it in? This does work with Samba+Winbindd and not just Samba 3.0.x

Sorry for not putting previous text in this reply...notes keeps crashing
when I do.

Drew, it is possible to publish the samba printers, in just the same way
you publish an NT printer.  I believe if you look in the "Active 
Users and Computers" MMC snap-in (though it could be a different one), 
you right-click on pretty much any object, you are given the option to
"publish downlevel printer...", and it will go in that container object, 
be careful which one you do it in.  It will contact the samba server and
get all the driver info it needs.  It should work with 2.2, and does it 
using the SPOOLSS code.  I have used it successfully.

You can also publish shared folders in the same way.
