Hi, Damir,

it'd help me a lot to evaluate your problem if you would kindly provide
some more information about your setup and what *exactly* you did.

* What's the OS/version Samba is running on?

* What's the Unix print subsystem you are using? (CUPS. LPRng,...)

* What sort of Win OS client were yuu using when you tried to set the
   default print settings?

Without a working crystal ball no-one is able to give you any solid answer
about your problem...   ;-)
