Hello everyone.

I am having a problem with my printer drivers getting loaded by users.  
I setup as domain admin user and am the only one who can add a printer 
and have it auto load the drivers.  i have everything setup the way 
multiple website say to set it up.  I have a user of the Domain Users 
group who has *SePrintOperatorPrivilege* for their user name.
When they double click the printer to connect/ install it, I get a 
message that the drivers cannot be found.  looking in the logs I see a 
permissions error but I cannot for the life of me see why I get that. I 
am setup as a PDC.

       comment = SMB Print Spool
       path = /var/spool/samba
       guest ok = Yes
       printable = Yes
       use client driver = no
       default devmode = Yes
       browseable = no
       public = yes
       writable = no

       comment = Printer Drivers
       path = /share/scripts/cups/drivers
       browseable = yes
       #Valid users = @Domain Users, @Domain Admins
       guest ok = yes
       read only = yes
       write list = karl, @Domain Admins

Any ideas on what to do?  Thanks.
