    Printing to an XP box worked when I tried RH 9.0 but using SuSE ... ?

    Added the printer using Yast2. The WinXP Server and the printer were both
    seen by Yast2 during installation and the "Test SMB Access" test was
    successful. When I print something though, it just sits on the kprinter
    queue and never actually prints. I'm running Samba and the workgroup in
    the smb.conf file is the same as on the XP machine. The contents of my
    /var/log/log.smbd and /var/log/log.nmbd are below and show nothing. My
    smb.conf is also shown below. I'm using SuSE 8.2 straight out
    of the box

    Do I even need to be running Samba to print to a WinXP box ?

    Please help or give me a clue where to look.

    Thanks,
    Rob
     
    Here's what's in my /var/log/log.smbd shows after trying to print:
