I got a Linux server (slack 8.1) running samba (2.2.4) to share home 
directories, printers and stuff like that.  Recently, I got a problem 
with my printer.  On Windows 2000, when I'm trying to print on my print 
server (samba), i get the following status on windows in the printer 
status:  supressing.  I don't understand why.  I removed all the job in 
my printer queue, I restarted lpd, smbd and nmbd and I reinstalled the 
printer on my Win 2000.  But I always got the same message.  Does 
somebody have never seen something like that?  That is wrong?

here is my printer share definition on smb.conf:

    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    browseable = no
    guest ok = yes
    printable = yes
    print command = lpr -r -Znoff -P%p %s

And the definition in /etc/printcap:
