I hope somebody can help me with my driver uploading problem. I have done everything according to the printing docs (I think =) ), but I can't seem to be able to upload the driver via neither XP or W2k. The error I get when using XP is: "An error occured while copying file ......... Cannot copy file to destination directory. Click Retry to retry the operation or click Cancel to cancel" I've created both the WIN40 and the W32X86 folders under /usr/local/samba/print, in addition I've tried all kinds of permissions on them. 
Here's what I do:
1. Go to the printer share on the Samba box via XP
2. Rightclick --> properties and then answer no
3. Go to advanced tab and press New Driver
4. Select the drivers to upload, it then starts copying the drivers locally before trying to upload them. This is when I get the error.
I use RH 7.1 and Samba 2.2.5.
My smb.config file:
 workgroup = SMARTI
 netbios name = Skule Server
 server string = NCS's Samba Server
