[Samba] Printer download - NOT WORKING

I've tried it with two HP drivers (HP4000,HP8000)
with the same result. I've added the output from
cupsaddsmb and from the smbd (debug level 5).
I also tried to upload to a hpux 11.0 running samba 2.2.3a
from the current hp depot. Same error ....

Is there another way to upload the drivers (by hand) ?
Are there example settings/config's somewhere ?

Thank's a lot, Peer
