Hi all,

  Having a very strange problem here. I'm on RH9,
using samba 3.0b3, cups 1.1.7, and a canon 1000sp
printer.  The printer itself doesn't matter.  I've
verified this on 2 seperate machines and I get the
same problem.  After reading everything there is...

I setup a printer in CUPS. A-ok.
I setup a printer in smb.conf (printing section):
   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   public = yes
   browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   printable = yes
   printer admin = root, @ntadmins

	comment = Printer Drivers
	path = /etc/samba/drivers
	browseable = no
	guest ok = no
	read only = yes
	write list = root

running cupsaddsmb -v tells me everything is A-ok. 
BUT, when I add the printer on Win2k, the drivers
don't install.  Perusing the samba logs shows it
reading the driver files.  I don't have access to
those logs right now.. but rpcclient says something
funny when it finishes:  result was

Here's the whole output set with -d 3:

?????  Everything LOOKS ok.  But it doesn't work. 
I've tried this on 2 RH9 machines...  HELP!!
