[Samba] Net use doesn't

I have a situation that causing premature gray.
All printers are connected to HP JetDirects.  A test print from Linux prints.
Sometimes a test print from Win98 works, usually it gets a spool32 error and I have
to reboot the workstation.
No NT machine can print.  There are NT 4 and Win2K machines.  When I setup a
printer, it doesn't configure a port.
In Win98, I can add a port in printer Properties/Details/Add Port... but net use

Error 67: The specified shared directory cannot be found. Make sure you have
specified the network name correctly. If the problem persists, contact your
network administrator.

Kernel 2.4.18-xfs-1.1
Samba 2.2.5

I saw mention of a patch that might have something to do with some printing
issues.  Has that been incorporated in 2.2.5 yet?
