Jerry, thanks, it fixed the biggest problem.  Device settings (installed
options) are now remembered and applications picked them up correctly,
so the appropriate printing preferences can now be set.  There is still
a problem with remembering printing preferences though.

Though the preferences are set on the samba server, when the client
installs the driver the printing preferences are lost (though device
settings are retained).  It gets a little stranger, in that when a
printer admin installs the printer on the client, printing preferences
are lost on the samba server too.  Our windows print guy assured me that
with the w2k server, the clients would inherit the printing preferences
that were set on the server at the time the printer was installed.
