Have you tried this with other MS products? This really sounds more
like you need to update office on those machines than a samba problem.
I would say that if word comes up and finds the default printer, you
need to try to update your office install.

They have to select a printer from the file menu and then this printer becomes the default printer for all users (which is a problem as users are on different floors and have to constantly change the printer).
