Don't be confused by "3.0" in the name of the document.
99% perhaps even 100% of the printing related 
information is not version dependent. Version 3.0 is 
better for printing because the resolution of bug #82 
was checked into 3.0 branch and not in 2.2.8 branch 
because they probably don't want to maintain that 
branch so actively now that 3.0 is out. The team is
spread a little too thin.

This is a directory which is created by a template in
samba.spec, not necessarily the directory in which
samba will look for it, which is ruled by an option
to configure command IIRC and is usually "drivers"
directory. I resolved the ambiguity have one name
linked to the other.
