[Samba] Win2k Printing Problems

Sorry it took me a couple days to get back to you:
I have NO ports listed in the Properties box of the Win2k PC. I figured
that this might be a problem. Is there a way that I can make a change on
the Linux box to have the Win2k PC create a port (would be a share name
like you said)? Or do I need to be creative with the registry like the
microsoft article states.
Also here is my /etc/printcap (again printconf created this):
>>> "Van Sickler, Jim" <vansickj-eodc at Kaman.com> 05/10 5:25 PM >>>
What port is listed on the Properties box on the Win2k PC?
I'd think it should list the network share, e.g. \\samba2\hp4plus
What does your /etc/printcap have listed for the printer ports?
