You might not have a permissions problem; I have the same setup here (ok,
almost, my server's a SuSE 8.0 instead of a redhat) and I had to enable the
raw support in cups to be able to print from samba.
locate the file named mime.types that _BELONGS TO CUPS_. dunno where redhat
places it, on suse its in /etc/cups/
look for the line "application/octet-stream", most likely near the bottom of
the file. make sure it isn't commented out.
