[Samba] XP Client Connects to Print Queue, Sends, Fails to Print

Hello everyone,

I am having a problem printing to a Xerox Document Centre 440 ST from XP pro
Clients thru my RedHat Linux 7.2 server running Samba 2.2.3a.

The XP Clients connect successfully to the printer queue, sends the file,
but nothing comes out of the printer.  At least for most XP Clients.  I have
one PC that does print, but that person is also an admin on the Linux box.
I know the PCs connect because I have also seen other peoples' print jobs in
the print queue from the PC that is having trouble.

Here is the printer portion of the Samba printer configuration, if it helps:

 printcap name = /etc/printcap
 load printers = yes
 printing = lprng
 use client driver = yes

 comment = All Printers
 path = /usr/spool/samba
 browseable = yes
 print command = lpr -b -r -h -P%p %s
 writeable = no
 printable = yes

How can I fix this problem?  All help is welcomed!
