Hopefully someone can help me with this printing problem.  Currently
running samba 2.2.5 on redhat 7.2.  I've set up a shared printer which can
be access through Samba and that part works fine.  Followed SAMBA
documentation on setting up a print$ share and placed printer drivers in
that share.  When I create the printer on Win2K Pro using the Add Printer
Wizard, it doesn't automatically upload driver files to my client.  Below
are the main points of my smb.conf file

   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   printing = bsd
   print command = /usr/bin/lpr -P%p -r %s
   printcap file = /etc/printcap
   min print space = 2000
   printer admin = @ntadmin
        security = share                      ; so anyone can print without
having an account on samba

   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = yes
   public = yes
   guest ok = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = yes

   path = /usr/local/samba/print
   read only = yes
   browseable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   write list = @ntadmin
