    Can't print to network printer

    I have a Samba server running Redhat 9 with a laptop running FC4 and WinXP and another laptop with just WinXP. File sharing is working perfectly on all the computers. I can print from WinXP on the laptops, however I can't print from FC4. My smb.conf is


    workgroup = TEST
    server string = LINUX-SERVER
    security = user
    encrypt passwords = yes
    hosts allow = 192.168.1.
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd


    path = /usr/shared
    read only = no
    public = yes


    path = /var/spool/samba
    printer = raw
    public = yes
    printable = yes

    Is there something I am missing. Should I be configuring it with CUPS instead? Point me in the right direction please.

    CUPS might be better for FC4. I can't quite remember what i did to set up something similar. Anyway you need to edit cups.conf(?) on the server in /etc and allow certain IPs to connect to it. You also need to set up cups on the client...if i remember correctly it had something to do with adding a remote printer and writing ipp://. I got that ipp part by connecting to localhost:631 with a web browser and fiddling through the links
