Sorry, folks, somehow my smb.conf was omitted from last night's
post here it is again but corrected:

Hello, list --

I trust this is the correct list for this post. I have been
wrestling literally for days with SAMBA/Win2K remote printing.
Here is the architecture:

qty 1- FBSD SAMBA Server PDC
qty 2- Network printers (an HP LJ2100 with Built-in net card,
and a Canon 6500 printer/copier also with built-in nic.
qty 50+ - Win2K Clients

SAMBA file sharing works great, and after much trial and error,
so does the printing but only to ONE printer -- the one
identified as 'lp'. I can successfully print from the FBSD box
to each remote printer in the printcap with: 

lpr -Pprinter . 

This tells me the printcap is working as are my print queues.
But when trying to print from the Win2K clients, I only get
output to one of the printers (the one I define as lp). I think
what is happening is that the lp: definition in the printcap
defaults to /dev/lp which then goes to the aforementioned

Can someone please set me straight? I am about to lose my mind,
my wife, and probably some other important things in my life!

Here is printcap file:

# APS1_BEGIN:printer1
# - don't delete start label for apsfilter printer1
# - no other printer defines between BEGIN and END LABEL
# APS1_END - don't delete this

And here is smb.conf:
