I do have the same problem. I am trying to install my RH9 as server with 
all tasks i need (apache,ftp, php, mysql, smb, ipmasquerading,..) but i do 
have the same problem now with my printer.

i do have a HP DeskJet 930C, and it works fine from RH9 .. i can print 
whatever i want -)
my Samba-server also works well except printer. i can read / write to smb 
shares without problem.

BUT !!

i can´t print from Windows CL (what did you do to get this work @ tom ?)
i can´t print through windows printer. i can add it but there is "access 
denied, no connection available" state.

plz Help ! -)
