Excuse me for my English.  

I use an impression (not yet;)  and file server samba 2.2.5 on a red hat 7.2.

I try to print starting from a station under Windows 2000 but I obtain the error "the handle is invalid".  

I installed the drivers for my impimante on the W2000 station but I would like to also know if the drivers of the printer are necessary for the W2000 workstation AND the Linux server.

Printer:  Optra T614 
Here is a part of my smb.conf

workgroup = test
netbios name = PDC-SRV
server string = Samba Ldap server
interfaces =
encrypt passwords = Yes
passwd program = "/usr/local/sbin/smbldap-passwd.pl -o %u"
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n *all*authentication*tokens*updated*
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /data/samba/log/log.%m
log level = 2
max log size = 5000
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
domain logons = Yes
os level = 80 
preferred master = False
domain master = True
dns proxy = No
wins support = Yes
domain admin group = " @"Domain Admins" "
printer admin = " @"Users" "
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No
guest ok = Yes
use client driver = yes
And my /etc/printcap :










Thank you in advance.
