Good morning,

I would appreciate some help.  SAMBA is new turf.  I am working out of a 
John Blair Book  SAMBA: Integrating UNIX and Windows  1998

PROBLEM:  unable to print to the 2nd of two printers on a samba host.
-4 systems in a home network; connected to an HP hub (10 meg)
-3 systems run Red Hat linux 9.0  (system names: snoopy, white, olblue)
-4th system runs Windows 2000 Professional (system name:  bigred)
-SAMBA server Snoopy has two directly attached printers, an HP 4L (old 
laser) on LPT1 and an HP OfficeJet T45 on LPT2
      Snoopy:  384 MEG RAM; celeron 400 Mhz
      SAMBA:  ver 2.2.7a
-On red: (Win2K) if a print job is sent to the HP_4L, it prints cleanly; 
if a print job is sent to the T45, it does not print
      Red:  COMPAQ Deskpro 64 MEG RAM; Pentium 200 Mhz
-On red: if one clicks start, run and types " \\snoopy", all shares on 
snoopy are seen, including the two printers
       [Win2K troubleshooting says that this demonstrates a "basic" 
-On red:  T45, upon being opened, reports in the title window:   "T45 on 
snoopy, Access denied unable to connect"
       HP_4L  initializes and then is available to print and does print
-Both printers print correctly; various softwares see both printers
