[Samba] Sharing Printer - Insufficient rights?

Hello jerry,

yes i'm sure this has nothing to do with the Driver-Install-Right:
IF i add the driver to samba (via rpcclient/cupsaddsmb) AND IF the user's in 
the Domain-Admin Group, everything (including installing the driver) is ok...
Also the Error-Message itself is clearly indicating that it's the right to 
install printers, not drivers (unfortunatly it's in german, so it wouldn't 
make much sense to post it here word-by-word ;)

Again: If i do that with winxp instead of samba, everything works perfect:
so i think it's a samba-related problem (something with passing-through the 
permissions of domain-users?!?)

Greetings, and thanks for the answer
