  OK, I've tried changing my printcap name from printcap to cups.  Printing 
works fine locally using CUPS on the Samba box.  What am I missing here?  Why 
can't I print to the Samba box via the Windows and linux clients?  Shared 
directories work fine.  I am really frustrated here and have exhausted Google 
and all other resources I have.  Here's my smb.conf for what it's worth.
