I am trying to get my windows machine to print to my samba server.  I
would like to
have it so that each user does not have to have an account.  I't just
at my house
so it really is not that bad, but would prefer not to.  I have a
directory shared out
which works well with out needing an account.  But when I try to look at the
printer from a Win2k machine it says access denied unable to connect.
Here is my smb.conf file:

# Global parameters
       protocol = NT1
       log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
       ldap ssl = no
       socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
       domain master = yes
       map to guest = Bad User
       wins support = true
       dns proxy = no
       server string = Samba Server %v
       workgroup = NOBLE
       os level = 20
       printcap name = cups
       security = user
       max log size = 50
       load printers = yes
       printing = cups
       printcap name = cups

       comment = All Printers
       path = /var/spool/samba
       browseable = no
       public = yes
       guest ok = yes
       writable = no
       printable = yes
       printer admin = root

       comment = Printer Drivers
       path = /var/lib/samba/printers
       guest ok = yes
       browseable = yes
       read only = yes
       write list = root

       guest ok = yes
       force user = mgnoble
       force group = mgnoble
       comment = Shared files
       writable = yes
       path = /home/shares

I have looked at the samba logs and there is nothing listed.
