    I don't think this is what you want. Set printing=lprng (that is what you use, right?), and set the printer share sections to something like this:
    Code:
    [laserjet]
            path = /var/spool/samba
            printer name = laserjet
            writable = yes
            public = yes
            read only = yes
            guest ok = yes
            printable = yes
            valid users = root gooner jeff pete darrel chad bruce brandon john
    Make sure /var/spool/samba exists and has perms 1777. That way, samba will save the print jobs there, and then pass them to the default print command used for LPRng.
    That is more probably what you want.
