I still do not have this working, and I checked everything that was suggested 
so far.  Does anyone have an idea of what is likely the cause?  I may find a 
solution if I knew the cause.  For example, are the printer drivers not 
showing up because samba cannot write to a tdb file?  Or perhaps something 

I do not know enough about the internals of samba to make an educated guess as 
to what may be the cause here.  I'm hoping someone else does know enough.. :)

Thanks again.
