[Samba] Fw: Spool directory permissions for printing

You have a couple of options... one being to remove the startup script or
perhaps modify it to avoid that queue when you start your machine. Another
would be to use a separate spool dir for Samba jobs.

Yet another might be to modify lpd.conf somewhat, but I don't really know
if that's possible to set in lpd.conf or if it can be done for just one

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?
