I'm trying to get the Add Printer Wizard to add printers
from a WinXP Pro workstation and am gettting the error
"Unable to install IBM 4037 5E, Windows 2000 or CP,Intel
driver.  The specificied network password is not correct."  

This is a new installation of Debian 3.0 and Samba 3.0.1-2.

This is the procedure that I use:

Browse to the Samba server
Open the Printers and Faxes folder
Right-click inside the printers and faxes folder.
Click "Server Properties"
Go to Drivers tab
Click Add, Next, and Choose Have Disk
Browse to my printer driver files.
Click Next and choose driver versions.

At this point it looks like it is copying the files, but
right at the end I see the error message.  

Here are portions of smb.conf, log files, and test results.

   comment = Printer Drivers
   path = /var/lib/samba/printers

Here is a partial listing of smbclient

# smbclient  //localhost/gctaylor -Ugctaylor    works.  

I can access the Samba server via \\server\print$ and create
text files under W32X86 and WIN40.  

Does anyone have any ideas?  I may have to use rpcclient but I'd like
to get this working if possible.
