I have the following in my /etc/samba/smb.conf, yet i still cannot print
from a Windows desktop client.  I can see the printer and it goes
through the motions of setting up the printer, it just doesn't print. 
It gives an error message about the network name cannot be found.  Yet
if I browse thru network neighborhood I can see the printer.  What I see
thouh is a name for the printer called Laserjet.

   ; printer driver = HP LaseJet5L
   comment = HP Printer
   path = /var/spool/lpd/hp5l
   browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
   guest ok = yes
   public = yes
   writable = no
   create mode = 0711
   printable = yes

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
