Having trouble connecting to print ques on AIX 4.3.3 running samba
with Windows XP client.  All other OS's (95,98,ME) can print and Windows XP
CAN interface with disk shares.  Not sure what is going on.

smb.conf file:

   printing = AIX
   printcap name = /etc/qconfig
   load printers = yes
   guest account = nobody
        print command = qprt -P%p -dp %s
   encrypt passwords = yes
        hosts allow = 128.200.
        workgroup = janesville
;  This next option sets a separate log file for each client. Remove
;  it if you want a combined log file.
;   log file = /usr/local/samba/log.%m

;  You will need a world readable lock directory and "share modes=yes"
;  if you want to support the file sharing modes for multiple users
;  of the same files
;  lock directory = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
;  share modes = yes

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = yes
   read only = no
   create mode = 0750
        guest ok = yes

   comment = All Printers
   browseable = yes
   printable = yes
        guest ok = yes
   writable = yes
   create mode = 0700
        print command = qprt -P%p -dp %s

        path = /
        public = yes
        guest ok = yes
        browseable = yes
        read only = no
