Possible reasons:
1) The driver wants to do some initialization which fails. So: which driver?
2) Your might be using and old and buggy samba version.
3) You have no "W32X86" directory in your driver directory
4) You "printer admin" authentication fails for some reason

The first thing I'll allways suggest is to call
"Start->Run" from your windows menu and enter
"\\your samba server\print$".
Change into the W32X86 directory and try to create a file or folder.
If this fails, you have an authentication or unix rights issue.
Otherwise you'll have to go further with more details.
