I have printers shared to XP home, XP professional, and windows98,
and don't have this problem.

Why don't you give more particulars about your system. Include:

Talk about your printer. What model, how your filter your jobs, what drivers
you installed on the clients and on the server, and anything else you think
might be relevant.

Could this be a permissions problem?

The most I can do right now is create a "Samba Printer Port" by going into "Server Properties" and defining a global port for all the printers.  But the problem that still remains is How can I tell my networks printers to use the "Samba Printer Port"?????
