I made all the changes you suggested. I restarted smb,nmb and lpd just
to be sure.

My Win2k box is still giving me the same error under "status" "failed
to open, retrying" and eventually "access denied; unable to connect" on
the queue.

Other permissions to check??

Try commenting out the "printer admin=" entry
-use it only when installing drivers?

I believe you also have to create a dir for
samba to spool to, chmod 01777, chown root.daemon

e.g. /var/spool/samba

and change the "path=" entry to it.
