Recently i created a print server with cups 1.2.8 and smbd Version
3.0.24-1.fc5 under a fedora 5 box.

I've installed some printer like as HP laserjet 2820, Konica Minolta
di2510, konica minolta 2430dl, hp laserjet 2600.

Drivers were uploaded with sucess. But i was getting a problem when
try to create a device mode for HP laserjet 2600. All others work
fine. In clientes with windows 2k, sometimes, when the client try to
change printer preferences explorer.exe crash or when trying to access
the properties page of the printer from Windows, the following error
message appears:
"Function address 0xXXXXXXXX caused a protection fault (exception code
0xc0000005). Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed."

i've followed this instructions

but nothing work.

In man smb.conf i found informations about "defaul devmode" option.
The default valeu for "default devmode' option is' no'. However when
declared in [printers] section all works fine. Errors disappear. The
device mode were created correctly.

Some issues: If the default value for this is option is NO why i need
to declare it?! I don't undestood. Can anyone to explain ?!
