Both Arti and I can successfully individually add printers from windows
clients.  But in my case the spooler thing doesn't seem to exist.

On a debian Sarge box this is what I get in the log for the machine
connected from after using the mmc plugin:

sh: line 1: /usr/lib/samba/svcctl/NETLOGON: No such file or directory
sh: line 1: /usr/lib/samba/svcctl/Spooler: No such file or directory
sh: line 1: /usr/lib/samba/svcctl/Spooler: No such file or directory

It looks like the samba packages for Debian don't set it up:

# ls /usr/lib/samba/
idmap  vfs

Should the Debian package set it up for me?  Should I log another bug for
Simo to look at?
