In a not unexpected twist (coming from microsoft, a company that 
routinely takes inspiration from Tomasi da Lampedusa's literary work[*]) 
it's called something different in windows 7 (I don't have a windows 7 
box at hand now, but it's "view remote printers" or something similar on 
the top address line).

> printer admin = root, @ntadmins, @smbprintadm

It's been deprecated for a while, you now have to grant the 
SePrintOperatorPrivilege to users/groups:
