i use samba server with winxp box on our lan from 3 years and before i can 
"upload" the xp drivers from a xp machine to samba server without any 
problem's but recently after un hard disk crash, i upgrade my mandriva 
server to the last release mdv (2006.0)  and now i wasn t able to upload the 
drivers again, directly from the server if i do, loged in root the cmd 
addsmb -a -v evry thing go fine, from xp clients i can see the new name of 
the drivers but in the samba share of drivers there is no file in the x86 
directory ..
so i don t hunderstant and find why the upload can t work any way
these the error message of xp client (sorry i m french and so i put the 
message in french and try to translate it the better i can):
french :
 "Assistant ajout de pilote d'imprimante : Impossible d'installer le pilote 
HP OfficeJet R80, windows 2000 ou XP,Intel. Impossible de terminer cette 
English :
"Assistant addition of pilot of printer: Impossible to install the pilot HP 
OfficeJet R80, Windows 2000 or XP, INTEL. Impossible to finish this 

Perhaps if you autoriz me i can put snapshot in another mail to explain wath 
i do :
from the xp client i logon to the samba pdc with the root account, i browse 
our networ, server, printer i do a right clic and choise "propriety of 
server" i go to the driver tab and clic the add buton after i make the 
correct choise of printer model, os and so on and finaly have the error 
I try to have a simultany look of samba, cups and syslog message but nothing 
else bad juste when i open the printer wizard share a error in sylog who say 
: Jan 27 18:07:30 alpha smbd[4797]:   supervision ( couldn't 
find service ::{2227a280-3aea-1069-a2de-08002b30309d}
i know this is the printer in windows registry but i don 't understand realy 
the problem my var/cache/samba/printers seems to be ok and on window i haven 
t another printers than printer server (one hp an one pdf).
