Don't look to me as an expert. I did manage to get stuff hooked up,
though. It's been 18 months or so since my install so all is hazy.
So, first, can you access your ~/ from Windows? I.e. in windows
explorer click network neighborhood, click a Linux box, click home, and
see your home directory.
If so, use the printer set-up wizard and select the raw (non-filtered)
printer in your printcap. Use the *Windows* print driver.
There may be some details missing here, so be sure to reread the Samba
HOWTO and other docs.
My smb.conf looks quite a bit different from yours, but if you like,
I'll send you mine for comparison.
