I am unable to 'Apply' new drivers to any printers shared on my Samba 2.2.7a
machine from a Windows XP machine. I log in as root, the drivers upload to
print$ without a hitch. But when I click 'Apply' or 'OK' to close the
printer properties dialog box, I get 'Cannot set printer properties. Access

The printer is a Hewlett Packard LaserJet 4100TN, the driver is the PCL 6
one from the installer CD that shipped with the printer.

The root user is a printer admin and in the write list for the print$ share.
Here's some level 10:
