Do you have  the following defined in smb.conf ?

1. "write list = "  under [print$]
2, "admin users" and "printer admin" under global settings.

I think the advanced tab (or any other tab) will not be grayed out if these
are defined.

Hope this helps.

Hmm.  All controls on the Advanced tab are greyed out, even for the
administrator connecting as root.  Is this related to being unable to
drivers from the ssrver using Server Properties?  This was mentioned as one
of the 2.2.6rc2 fixes.
