By, "They do not show up in samba", is that from the
Samba or Windows client?  Sometimes Windows take a bit
to notice, for best results try: "smbclient -L localhost
-U [user]" and see if they show up. 

Do you have a [printers] share and a load printers = Yes?
If not you need to add print share explicitly in smb.conf.
