[Samba] Win2K Printer Driver Problems - Hi Jerry!!

OK, OK, got it now.

Printer Admin is defined in the docs as a Share parameter, but to be able to
modify server settings it needs to be in the Global section.

I'm still getting 20+ print messages in the workstation's System Event log
whenever a change to the server-based driver is made.  Is this normal?

Thanks much Jerry!  Looks like our two-month nightmare is over.

I think I've already mentioned this in anotehr post, but you need to do 
this on the "Advanced" tab to set the device mode on the server.
The "General" tab sets the per user devmode on the client.

You may need to install the driver on the server and click ok
on the properties page, and then reopen before the "Printing Preferences"
button shows up on the advanced tab.

cheers, jerry
