[Samba] Not using CUPS. How much can I strip from smb.conf?

I'm not using CUPS for printing, instead clients have local printers and
are using Windows' printer sharing.

Can I assume it's safe to completely remove the following from smb.conf,
or do I need to replace it with something:

printcap name = cups
printing = cups

       comment = All Printers
       path = /var/spool/samba
       printer admin = root, smbadmin
       create mask = 0600
       guest ok = Yes
       printable = Yes
       browseable = No

       comment = Printer Drivers Share
       path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
       write list = root, smbadmin
       printer admin = root, smbadmin

Using samba 3.0.21b on debian etch.

Thank you
