[Samba] Can't print to win client

I've connected a BSD machine to a WinME machine in the office to
begin experimenting with samba. I've been messing about with it but
I can't get a print of samba files to the WinME printer.
My /var/spool/lpd/canon directory contains .config, .seq, status
and lock files and a whole bunch of files that aren't getting printed
to the remote printer.

my .config file has: server=ICE1

Status file has "waiting for ice1 to come up"?

Lock file has "248"?

my printcap file:  Canon:\
                   ;   :rm=ice1:\
                   ;   :rp=CANON:\

   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/lpd/canon
   browseable = no
   writeable = yes
   printable = yes   
   create mode = 0777
   public = yes
   comment = Canon BJ3000
   path = /var/spool/lpd/canon
   browseable = yes
   guest account = Laurie
   public = yes
   writeable = yes
   printable = yes
   create mode = 0755

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
