now i'm confused.  do you have anything in your /etc/cups/printers.conf ?
what step are you up to in the howto?  which howto?  i've got the 'cups
software administrators manual' and 'printing support in samba 3.0'

what reference are you going by?

I tried "cupsaddsmb -v PDFprinter", but system complaints that it cannot
find PDFprinter.ppd. I tried copy PDFprinter.ppd to almost every folder, but
still no luck. I'm doing this right? Where should I put PDFprinter.ppd?
