Hi all

I have a linux system running samba "Samba 2.2.7a-SuSE".  I have a networked
printer installed locally on the linux machine which has been created on the
samba gui "901".  Users from NT machines can see the printer over the
network using a UNC path.  When the remote user clicks onto the printer, a
prompt appears declaring that the printer needs to be set up on the
computer.  I click on Yes to accept the request.  A warning message then
appears stating that the server on which the printer resides does not have
suitable driver installed.  Click ok if you wish to install the driver.

I would like to automate the process for the users using the networked
printer.  How do you configure samba to allow the remote NT workstation to
connect and use the printer without installing the drivers locally on the NT
