	Thanks for the note.  I will look into this.  I still perplexed that the 
driver download settings were OK for printer admins, but messed-up for regular 
users.  This looks like the same problem going back to Samba versions prior to 
2.2.2, problems which I had thought fixed.
 Speaking only for myself - CSU pays better people than me to speak for them.
