	Well, I probably undertand it wrongly.
I have a single share called [printers] for ALL printers now.
And that share is widely open for obvious resons.
What I meant is how to restrict access on per printer basis.
I tried to play with Security tab in the explorer but it did not work.
I removed Everyone and added particular users, but any user still be
able to print. :(

P.S. Samba is built --with-acl-support.
