First, my system is FreeBSD not Linux, basically they are equal, but
FreeBSD don't have run level's.
Second, the lpd daemon (not cups) is running before smbd and nmbd start
(I saw in the console).
Finally, I put a "sleep 300" in samba startup script, to allow lpd to
finish all the work, and I can't printing.
