[Samba] CUPS & client driver download

Hi everybody!

I've got a problem with downloading printerdrivers from my win2k box.
Successfully added printer with cupsaddsmb-tool (as root, after
failing as printer admin!!?!?!). The W32X86 and WIN40 directories
have been created as they should and also did the PPD files.
But if I connect to the printer from Win (as printer admin) I get the message that no
driver could be found.

RPCclient CALL "enumprinters" gives me:

>INFO: Debug class all level = 2   (pid 6470 from pid 6470)
>session setup ok
>Domain=[VALIKTALS] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.3a]
>cmd = enumprinters
>        flags:[0x800000]
>        name:[\\localhost\HP690C]
>        description:[localhost\\localhost\HP690C,HP DeskJet 690C, Foomatic + pcl3,localhost\HP690C]
>        comment:[localhost\HP690C]

but all the RPCclient CALL "enumdrivers" states is:

>INFO: Debug class all level = 2   (pid 6472 from pid 6472)
>session setup ok
>Domain=[VALIKTALS] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.3a]
>cmd = enumdrivers

shouldn't I be seing more info here?

here is how smb.conf looks like:

        security = SHARE
        load printers = yes
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups
        printer admin = tony, root

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        browseable = no
        public = yes
        guest ok = yes
        writable = no
        printable = yes
        printer admin = tony, root 

        comment = Printer Drivers
        path = /local/samba/printerdrivers 
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        read only = yes
        write list = tony, root

What am I missing? Has anybody got a clue?
