I am trying to setup samba-2.2.2 on a sun sparc 5 running solaris 8/10 to
provide point and install print services for PC clients.

I have read through the Samba how to doco that shipped with samba-2.2.2 and
have followed the sections 6.2.1 thru to 6.2.2 and still no go ...

For nt4 and windows 2000 I have connected to the print server as lp admin. I
run the install wizard, select the samba printing port and appropriate
driver. The wizard shows copy progress of files over to the print$/w32x86.
It gets to the end of the progress bar and up pops the following message for
nt4 client

"The operation could not be completed. Access is denied"

The following message appears for Windows 2000 client

" Unable to install printer. Access is denied"

Below is a transcript of my smb.conf file


        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        load printers = yes
        printer admin = car366, @lp, root

    path = /opt/local/samba/printers
    guest ok = yes
    browseable = yes
    read only = yes
    ; since this share is configured as read only, then we need
    ; a 'write list'.  Check the file system permissions to make
    ; sure this account can copy files to the share.  If this
    ; is setup to a non-root account, then it should also exist
    ; as a 'printer admin'
    write list = @lp, root, car366

Any ideas ?
