[Samba] Printers configured using CUPS web interface disapper after restart

Hi all,

I set up a samba server as PDC and counfigured one local printer connected
to the samba server's parallel port and another jetdirect pritner with ip using the CUPS WEB INERFACE.  Both were working fine and I
could print from windwos clients also.

Samba server was configured on a test system. So saturday evening I shutdown
the system and today when I started the linux box, I could not find the
printers I have configured.  Just to test again I configured a parallel
printer again and restarted the linux (Fedora core 4) system and found that
the system is not showing any pritners, neither in cups config page nor in
Desktop->systemconfig->pritners option.

Could someone help me to understand why the printers vanish after a restart
and how can I keep them even after a restart?
