[Samba] Windows clients cannot print in color

Hmmm... Be careful with the 1.2 series of CUPS. I've noticed problems with 
color printer ppds in this version. I've been using 1.1.23 with 
foomatic/postscript drivers (downloaded from linuxprinting.org) with no real 
problems. What kind of color laser printers do you have? At my job, we use 
HP 4550Ns. Also, make sure you're using the CUPS windows driver with your 
Windows clients. That may help a bit.
