I configured CUPS and smb.conf:

	workgroup = workgroup
	netbios name = darkstar
	security = user
	smb passwd file = /etc/samba/private/passdb.tdb
	log file = /var/log/samba.%m
	max log size = 50

	comment = Home Directories
	browseable = yes
	read only = No

	comment = All Printers
	path = /var/spool/samba
	guest ok = yes
	printable = yes
	browseable = yes

To install the printer drivers on WinXP Pro,
I launch the utility 6122_WIN2K_XP.EXE.
All seems to go well, but when the program
tries to create the net port for the printer,
it happens an error and the process
fails. I gave as printer address
Darkstar is the name of Linux server.

Is it enough, or anyone need
more information to help me
to understand the reason of this trouble?
