--> I can't get Samba (via Swat) to see my CUPS printers at all.

Have you restarted Samba after creating the printers in CUPS?

I was expecting to find my new printers showing up as I added them through 
CUPS, but had to re-start SAMBA before they were showing up in the share 

I am also not sure about having [printers$] and [printers]. I only have 
[printers] and [print$]. The [print$] share works for the driver uploading 
and autoinstall on my clients. The [printers] share is for the "global" 
printer configuration ( eg: guest ok = no, etc. etc. ).
