ok, redhat 7.3, samba 2.2.7, and i've switched from lprng to CUPS 
1.1.14. both samba and cups are the latest updated version from redhat.

i used the PPD from the windows machine to configure the CUPS printer. 
this worked fine, CUPS see's all the configurable options, all 13 
different paper sizes. but still when i configure on the win2k client i 
only get 5 paper sizes.
