Hello, I am new to Linux and Samba. I am trying to print from a W98 box to a Linux printer.
I am using Suse 7.2 and Samba 2.2.8a., and Linux is acting as a PDC.
I created a user in Linux and put it in the users group and the lp group. The only way I got this user to print was changing the spool directory permissions (and all the files within it) from 0600 to 0770. BUT when I restarted Linux today, I got boot warnings saying that these permissions are incorrect, and they were automatically changed back to 0600. This way I cannot print. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you very much for your help.
