I have problems with printing from WinXp. I have configured
CUPS printer, which work fine. So I wanted to export the 
printers via Samba to my Win-Boxes using the following
        printing = cups
        printcap name = CUPS
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/tmp
        create mask = 0600
        guest ok = Yes
        printable = Yes
        browseable = Yes
On my WinXp clients I can see the printers and I can use them.
When I print a document I see it in the windows printing queue.
I see there also the printing document from CUPS. But when the
windows document are deletet from the windows queue nothing happens.
I watched the /var/tmp directory and it seems to me, that the
documents never arrive there.
Whats could be the problem ?
Thank you.
