 my problem is to access a shared printer with samba on my WindowsXP

 When I browse thru my network with Explorer, I can see the shared printer.
 When I double-clic on the printer, Windows XP ask me if I want to install
 I choose the right driver and click "OK".
 The installation begin and there is no error in the installation.
 After the installation Windows XP open the printer's printing queue to show
 the printer's status, but in the window's title there is this notice:

 "Access denied, Cannot connect to printer"

 I would like to know how I can get rid of this problem please.
 This work really well in Windows 98 but not on XP.

 Here is my smb.conf , let me know if you find something to find this

 Note: 2.2.4 is the version of samba I use

 # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
 # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
 # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
 # many!) most of which are not shown in this example
 # Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
 # is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
 # for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
 # may wish to enable
 # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
 # to check that you have not many any basic syntactic errors.

 # Security mode. Most people will want user level security. See

 # Samba-1.9.18, you'll need to use "security = share".

 # You may wish to use password encryption. Please read

 # Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
