I have samba set up on slackware linux. I have a printer set up on the same machine. It shows up on the windows XP machine and even lets me install and everything. It keeps saying access denied though. I have tried all sorts of stuff to get it to work with the XP machine but I keep gettting the same error.
This is my smb.conf:
	printing = bsd
	printcap name = /etc/printcap
	load printers = yes
	log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
	lock directory = /var/lock/samba
	encrypt passwords = yes
	security = user
	null passwords = yes

	comment = All Printers
	path = /var/spool/lpd/Lexmark
	browseable = no
	printable = yes
	public = yes
	writable = no
	inherit permissions = yes
	create mode = 0700
	guest ok = yes

	comment = home directory
	browseable = no
	read only = no
	create mode = 0750

	comment = Temporary file space
	path = /tmp
	read only = no
	public = yes

any suggestions will be greatly appreciated
