   I, too, run Samba on a Solaris 8 server, and when I receive Office XP
jobs, they can take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to print through my spooler software
   It seems only to be especially large jobs (more than a few thousand
pages) that are this slow.
   I run from a sunfreeware.com package. Did you compile your own?
   In my case, I fear that the lpusy performance is due mostly to shared
memory files on a mirrored disk; have you examined the underlying disks
& networking? You know, leave no stone unturned and all that. :7)
