If anybody could help this would be much appreciated...

Samba being used with Domain security, as a printer server with an NT 4.0 
PDC and BDC. Can browse file shares, can act as printer admin (FINALLY !!), 
but cannot upload printer drivers, have created print$ share, have created 
W32X86 and WIN40 directories. When I try to print I get the following error 
message in machine specific log, nothing in nmbd or smbd logs.

[2002/08/21 17:16:41, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(252)
   pc194-70 ( couldn't find service 
[2002/08/21 17:16:45, 0] printing/printing.c:print_job_start(1011)
   print_job_start: insufficient permissions to open spool file 

Permissions on /home/.../lp1 is 766, permissions on print$ share and sub 
directories are 777.

So two things, How do I print ? and How do I upload drivers ? What 
permissions should be on what directories ?

An and all help appreciated
