OK the problem seems to have been fixed.
I believe I did not restart the samba daemon. Forgive my noobielikeness.
Heres the hand configured file if anyone needs it:
path = /var/spool/samba
writable = no
guest ok = yes
public = yes
printable = yes
printer name = Lexmark E210 DOWNSTAIRS -- Beside the jacuzzi under the
use client driver = yes
print command lpr -P %p -o raw %s -r
lpq command = lpstat -o %p
lprm command = cancel %p-%j
btw, i just added that jacuzzi stuff, the waterfall doesnt leave enough
room for it :(
