This should be yes if you want your printers to show up.
Otherwise the [printers] share below is there for no

I don't think you need socket options anymore, I could be wrong.

The SMB protocol doesn't allow you to have your machine name
the same as your workgroup name.  This may be an issue.

That's a lot of "valid users".  Perhaps you should create a group,
just for managability.  Not strictly necessary.

What's the exact error and how does it present itself?  Is it
in the event log, or is it a popup dialog type error message?
