[Samba] Fw: Spool directory permissions for printing

You would merely create a directory someplace, either in /var/spool/lpd
like the others, or someplace else, but one that is NOT referrenced in the
printcap file, as if it is, the script will enforce permissions on it. All
Samba needs is a place to put the files. I would then, as indicated in the
HOWTO, change the permissions to 770 and then chmod g+s the directory, to
make sure that the files will be able to be removed by samba (ie. they
will be created by the right group, regardless of the user's group).
