Hi Adam,

Vista does work with cups and samba.
But their will be lots of drivers and configurations that won't do.

So please provide some more information.
- Which Samba Version?
- What driver do you use?
- What have you successfully done? (Have you installed the driver on 
your Samba server? Have you successfully assigned the driver to a 
printer? etc.)
- If possible: does the setup work with XP?

I'd assume, that junk comes out of the printer because the EMF is not 
converted to the printer language. In some drivers this is caused by the 
lack of some registry entries.
