I can't seem to get a Windows XP Media Center Edition system to see a very 
simple print share.

	workgroup = HOME
	realm = SHAUN
	server string = Samba Server
	security = SHARE
	encrypt passwords = No
	log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
	max log size = 50
	dns proxy = No
	wins support = Yes
	valid users = shaun
	admin users = shaun
	read list = shaun
	write list = shaun
	printer admin = shaun
	cups options = raw

	comment = All Printers
	path = /usr/spool/samba
	printable = Yes
	browseable = No

	comment = HP LaserJet 4/4M
	path = /usr/spool/samba
	read only = No
	guest ok = Yes
	printable = Yes
	printer name = LaserJet_4
	oplocks = No
	share modes = No

Anyone have any clues here? Only thing I can think of is possibly my valid 
user list, but I have guest ok = Yes in the print share.

It isn't about it being free. Rather its about the freedom it brings.
