[Samba] Printing into ether

I'm having an odd problem. The system sees my printer, and from the local 
box I can print fine. I set it up in Samba and it shows up there as well. 
I can mount it from my WinXP laptop and it doesn't kick back any errors 
when I try to print. 

The problem is that the print job never actually gets printed. Nothing in
the queue, no errors, just no printing. It's got to be something I have
set wrong in the smb.conf file, but I'll be damned if I can figure out
what it is. Any help would be appreciated, anyone see what I'm doing 

# smb.conf

	server string = File Server
	security = SHARE
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
	local master = No
	dns proxy = No
	hosts allow = 192.168.1.
	load printers = yes
	printing = cups

	path = /samba
	writeable = yes
	guest ok = Yes

         comment = HP Photosmart 1115
         path = /var/spool/samba
         browseable = yes
         public = yes
         guest ok = yes
         writable = no
         printable = yes
         printer admin = root
	 use client driver = yes
