[Samba] Win2k Printing Problems

Yes, it is exactly that problem.

I added the port (lpr) through the printer setup and re-linked the
printer (manually changed the port to match the new port) that did not
have a port listed through the registry and it works fine
(finally!!...thank you!!)

The /'s are messing up Win2k and it won't add a lpr port to the
machine. Is there any potential fix for this problem? 

Would the enumports command in smb.conf help at all?
