here is my setup (working for both win95 and nt
but with 2.2.5 patched (not release)

printer admin = root, bwlang
printing = cups

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No
        path = /etc/samba/printers
        write list = root

ls -ld /var/spool/samba 
drwxrwxrwt    2 root     root          141 Jul 12 08:49

note that I'm using cups - not lprng that redhat comes with
but it should not matter you seem to have a problem before 
the job get sent off to the printing system.

What is in your log files?
