[Samba] Win2K sp4 can't print

I just installed 2 Win2K sp4 workstations on an otherwise working Samba 2.2.8a
network and 2 of the 3 printers are showing "Access denied".  What's up with that?
The other computers that are working just fine are Win98, XP and Win2K NOT sp4.

Here is part of the global section:
        printing = bsd
        load printers = yes
        disable spoolss = yes
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        printer admin = admin, administrator, @ntadmin

Here is one of the printers:
        comment = Our Printer
        path = /var/spool/lpd/hp4000n
        queuepause command = /usr/sbin/lpc -P%p stop
        queueresume command = /usr/sbin/lpc -P%p start
        print command = /usr/bin/lpr -Php4000n -r %s
        use client driver = yes
        printer name = hp4000n
        browsable = yes
        printable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        writable = no
        public = yes
        force user = lp
        create mask = 0700
        write list = admin, administrator, @ntadmin

All the printers are identical except for the name and the path.  They work for
everybody except the Win2K sp4.

Any ideas?
