Hey... first time post to this group :s

i have recently upgraded from mandrake 9.1 to 10.0, automatically installing 
samba version 3.0.2a-3 to my system over the previous version, i kept my 
original config file..
all my old directory shares, as well as any new shares i add, are displayed as 
printers in all my clients on the network (WinXP pro, Win98, smb).. 
i have tried manually adding shares to the config file and adding shares 
through swat and webmin, but the keep appearing as printers.
i'm confused to hell and would appreciate any advice.. 
 i have attached my config file  for reference..

thanks in advance..
