Please help.

Thanks in advance.


In looking at your smb.conf settings, I'm assuming you have the Lexmark
print drivers installed on each client. Win95 systems automatically
install a local driver, but NT systems want to spool from an NT server
by default. With the "use client driver = yes" you are telling the
clients to look for a local Lexmark driver and to spool from the client
machine. You won't be spooling from your samba server. With the NT
clients you wouldn't necessarily need the samba printer if they have a
local driver, you could TCP/IP print or communicate directly with the
unix LPD service if you've got the LPR drivers from Microsoft.
