Aw, geez, forgot to mention essentials:
Samba 3.5.6
Freebsd 8.1
Cups 1.4.6

         log level = 6
         workgroup = KRH
         realm = KRH.INT
         netbios aliases = freecups-2 freecups samba
         server string = FreeBSD Server %v
         security = ADS
         password server = kal-dc3.krh.int, kal-dc4.krh.int, 
kal-dc2.krh.int, *
         ntlm auth = No
         client NTLMv2 auth = Yes
         smb ports = 139
         printcap cache time = 10
         printcap name = cups
         cups server = localhost
         addprinter command = /usr/local/sbin/smbaddprinter.pl
         deleteprinter command = /usr/local/sbin/smbdelprinter.pl
         local master = No
         domain master = No
         browse list = No
         wins server =
         idmap uid = 10000-20000
         idmap gid = 10000-20000
         winbind cache time = 300
         winbind use default domain = Yes
         winbind refresh tickets = Yes
         guest ok = Yes
         cups options = raw

         comment = PDF files
         read only = No
         browseable = No
         browsable = No

         comment = All Printers
         path = /var/spool/samba
         printable = Yes
         browseable = No
         browsable = No

         comment = Printer Drivers
         path = /usr/home/KRH_drivers
         write list = root, printserver,KRH\jdown
         force user = printserver
         force group = printserver
         guest ok = No

I kind of get the impression that printing is either not important to 
this list, or not many people find it difficult to sort out at all.  If 
you are in the second category, please let me know where I'm going 
wrong, or what further information I should post to make the problem a 
bit clearer.
