So, does anyone what the command to just map the printer is? The driver is already 
installed on these computers. This is a JetDirect device that was setup on all the boxes. 
I changed it around so that the computers map to a printer share on my Samba PDC that 
connects to the JetDirect. My command was giving me the "Access denied".
