Thanks for this reference. I see it is rather old as originally set up
on '06 and last modified in '08. It would see that Samba PDC setup
instructions would do a better job of pointing here.
The 'big item' now is which policy to get the HP printer drivers loaded
to use the local printer setup, as I could not find it on what is
available in XP, or I just have not set the policy right yet. As well
as what policy is blocking connecting to a printer share. It would be
nice if there was some logging of the blocking policy.
