not sure what Iv'e messed up here, but I did have my mandrake 9 server sharing it's printer to my windows boxes with samba.
I reinstalled linus on the server, and replaced winxp with mandrake 9 on one workstation.
the linux workstation and server each have a printer connected and both machines can use each others printers.
I have been trying for a week to get the windows boxes to use the printers to no avail.
The printers are found and installed, but the print jobs disappear....no errors.
oh yeah, below is part of my smb.conf
