Use the 'load printers = no' global option and then create a share section.
An example from my smb.conf below

# printers
   comment = "HP DeskJet 600"
   path = /tmp
   printable = yes

On our samba server (3.0.22-SuSE93) we have many printers installed with
Most of them are RAW queues to use within Windows. A few of them
however, are filtered queues for Linux to use.

I would like to EXCLUDE the filtered queues so Windows users cannot
use them, but am not sure how to do this within the smb.conf.

Thanks in advance for any assistance,
