There are two different versions of drivers for Win2K and XP.  Normally these 
are referred to as version 2 and version 3.  I believe, while Win2K and XP 
support both versions, I believe Vista only supports version 3 drivers.  You 
can tell which is installed on your samba system by looking in the print$ 
share under the W32X86 directory.  There should be two directories 
labelled "2" and "3".  Version 2 drivers go in the 2 directory and version 3 
drivers go in the "3" directory.  If the drivers are under the "2" directory, 
you may want to update the drivers associated with the share to use the ones 
bundled with Vista.

The evil that is in the world almost 
always comes of ignorance, and good 
intentions may do as much harm as 
malevolence if they lack understanding.
