please help me:
After searching for nearly 2 weeks for a solution, I have to ask for 

debian sarge - update from an working installaton on woody (without printing)

Now the samba server joins ADS, authenticates users, but should also provide
I have installed cups, configured my smb.conf:
   load printers = yes
   printing = cups
   printcap name = printcap.cups

   path = /var/samba
   browseable = no
   write list = root

   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/cups
   browseable = no
   public = yes
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   printable = yes

   comment = S/W-Laserdrucker Kyocera FS-1750
   printeable = yes
   path = /var/spool/samba/kyo1750
printcap.cups :


OK, and here is my problem: 

no printer appear in network-neigbourhood - I can not connect 
to the printer from any windows box, but printing the testpage from cups
works fine.

Wher should I look for more debugging? 
Did I miss anything? 
Or is my understanding of printing wrong?

I am absolutely without an idea where to go from here on.
Reading the samba-docs did not help me really, and the new book
"samba-3 by example" is on the way to me.

Thank you for any hint.
