[Samba] Troubleshooting Printer setup

I am running SuSE V8.0, and Samba 2.2.7a on a small 
network server.

I have been having problems relating to sorting out printing from an NT4 
workstation to a laser printer on the Samba server.

I had to reboot my Windoze PC and am logged in as myself (I have 
Administrator rights). I can see the shares by looking for the computer 
through Network Neighborhood from Windows NT using the ip or 
by the PC name "penguin"and can proceed to launch the wizard and add the 
printer, however it fails on trying to finish the process. 

I get the error message:
Operation could not be completed. Access denied!

I am assuming that a configuration file is not being written due probably to a 
permissions issue, if this is the case then I am at a loss to know what and 
where the permissions have to be changed.

Could someone set me straight here? 
Any advice appreciated.
