[Samba] windows can't print :o(

Hy guys!
I have a problem with my samba configuration. I really hope you can help me 
out here, since I am pretty new to Linux and still try to figure it out.
So, here it goes:

I hava a "server" running SuSE 8.0 and should work as a firewall and 
I started out setting up the homes share, which works like a dream. Next the 
printer. Installed the printer with cups, test, works. Goto samba, create share 
Winodws, install printer works. But a testpage never gets printed (wihtout 
windows giving an error) and a regular printjob just stays in the spooler on the 
windowsmachine, and never even sees samba.

So, what am I doing wrong here?

At the bottom of this mail is the smb.conf.

Thanks for your help and 
best regards
Klaus Zahradnik
