I ended up solving the riddle myself by taking out sections of my 
smb.conf until I found the bug that was causing me grief.  A few months 
back I was looking into how to optimize my settings to boost the speed 
for DOS clients.  I set "max xmit = 4096" to improve my speed. 
Everything worked fine until I had a power outage and I upgraded my 
samba at the same time to a newer version.  That's when the wierd 
printing behavior started.  I looked into the "max xmit" setting and I 
changed it to 16644 which is supposed to be the default size for Windows 
2000, and my printing problem was solved.  I don't know why everything 
else still worked such as sharing files and acting as a PDC, just 
printing was affected.
