Hi Nadine,

I have edited your smb.conf to best match my own setup.
Lines beginning with "-" sign should be commented out.
By most of them there is a short comment why. Lines
beginning with "+" sign are new lines I added to make
it look more like my setup.

It should work at your side, but don't forget to first
create the default mode by accessing the printer as
root and performing the ritual I described in on of my
previous letters.

Good luck.
