Does this machine get its IP via DHCP ?
If it does, remove the ' printserver' line

If not, you need a line like this: printserver.domain.tld printserver  
and remove the ' printserver' line

But I don't think this is really your problem, sometimes you
concentrate on the problem and miss the obvious thing :-(

You are trying to setup a printserver on a standalone server using
tools meant for an NT4 style domain.

Is the windows machine you mentioned a member of an AD domain ?
