I'm having problems using my network shared printer. It is connected
to a linux box (via USB) where samba is running. I am using it to
enable my other windows boxes to share a printer.

It works fine on a local (Server) machine, but when I try to use it
from  my other windows boxes, I have a problem - although it is stated
that the printer status is "Ready" it takes quite a while for "Print
dialog" to appear on my windows boxes. What could be the problem?

My configuration file:

# Global parameters
	workgroup = 
	server string = %h server (Samba %v)
	security = SHARE
	map to guest = Bad User
	obey pam restrictions = Yes
	passdb backend = tdbsam, guest
	passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
	passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
	syslog = 0
	log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
	max log size = 1000
	dns proxy = No
	ldap ssl = no
	panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
	invalid users = root

	comment = Home Directories
	create mask = 0700
	directory mask = 0700
	browseable = No

	comment = All Printers
	path = /tmp
	create mask = 0700
	printable = Yes
	browseable = No

	comment = Printer Drivers
	path = /var/lib/samba/printers

	path = /tmp
	read only = No
	create mask = 0700
	guest ok = Yes
	printable = Yes
	printing = cups
	print command = 
	lpq command = %p
	lprm command = 
	lppause command = lpc hold '%p' %j
	lpresume command = lpc release '%p' %j
	queuepause command = lpc stop '%p'
	queueresume command = lpc start '%p'
	printer name = HL1430
	use client driver = Yes
	oplocks = No
	share modes = No

Thank You!
