Thanks for your quick reply, but it doesn't solve the problem for me, 
because the "add" and "delete" buttons are grayed out (not usable) in this 
context, though I logged in with admin rigths. (I hope so)
(Besides of that - a scriptable solution would be very helpfull, because I 
have to do this for  about 90 printers...)

Is there something special about using Windows Server 2003 for client os?

 From my smb.conf:

          comment = All Printers
          path = /var/spool/samba
          browseable = no
          public = yes
          guest ok = yes
          writable = no
          printable = yes
          printer admin = @bit

          comment = Printer Drivers
          path = /etc/samba/drivers
          create mask = 774
          directory mask = 775
          browseable = yes
          guest ok = no
          read only = yes
          write list = ntroot

I logged in as user "ntroot" which is member of the "bit" group. Something 
wrong with this?
