[Samba] Printer Rights Fail

Hello everyone,

I upgraded my Samba server on my RHL 7.2 box from 2.2.3a to 2.2.7.  Almost
immediately afterwards, all of my admin users suddenly were unable to access
the printers that were being shared by Samba.  Any idea of what is wrong and
how to fix it?  The messages I'm getting are that I do not have enough

I am using a Windows 2000 Server PDC and a lot of Windows XP Pro, and
Windows 98/95 clients, of which the Win9x pcs and some XP clients have no
problems.  Things are getting frantic here.

Here is a copy of a portion of my smb.conf file for the printers:

            printcap name = /etc/printcap
            load printers = yes
            printing = lprng
            use client driver = yes

            comment = All Printers
            path = /usr/spool/samba
            browseable = yes
            print command = lpr -b -r -h -P%p %s
            writeable = no
            printable = yes
            valid users = @DDS+"DOMAIN USERS" @DDS+"DOMAIN WEBUSERS"

All help is appreciated.
