I'm part of an organization managing Windows clients with a couple of 
GNU/Linux servers.
We're having some trouble configuring our Samba 3 Debian Linux server.
It's just a domain member with authentification done with a Windows AD 
Domain Controller, it's supposed to be our new print server.
The printers have already been set up for lprng.
Whenever trying to add a driver to any printer throught the Add Printer 
Driver Wizard on a Windows client, with a username part of
the 'print admin' group, we get this error message:
"Unable to install HP Lazerjet 4000 Series PCL 6, Windows 2000, Intel 
Driver. Access denied"

All our printers are in /etc/printcap already.
There are no entries for any of them in smb.conf

        path = /var/lib/samba/printers
        write list = root, @MYGROUP\Staff
        create mask = 0700

We've read and re-read the chapters/section apropos in the doc, but 
can't find what we're doing wrong.

Help or advice would be greatly appriciated :)
