    Have 2.2.8a on SuSE 9.0 pro. I have a hp lj4 connected to the parallel
port on the machine. Printing is with cups. After setting up the printer on
the SuSE box I could print from the SuSE box but not from the XP clients.
Under the printers share in smb.conf I set path = /var/spool/samba, created
the directory, chown nobody.nobody and chmod 777. I can now print from XP,
but is there a better way of doing this??
