I've been having issues with Win98 printing on RedHat ES 3, which is using
Samba 3.0.2-6.ES.  The WinXP computers print fine, but the Win98 ones tend
to lose the print queue and I've noticed that even if they print job files
tend to remain in the /var/spool/samba directory.

the users on site can no longer print. When a user prints a document nothing
comes out on the printer and further investigation in the Windows printers
folder reveals the printers are sat with 'x' amount of jobs on them and
constantly refreshing, opening the print queue on the users window machine
reveals no jobs in the queue at all.
