I've attached a copy of my /etc/printcap file at the end of this message. The Windows users do not log in to the FreeBSD machine to use the printer. I don't have samba installed at all. The Windows hosts are listed in my FreeBSD /etc/hosts.lpd file; otherwise the FreeBSD machine won't know who they are and won't permit them to connect. Follow the Windows instructions to install "print services for unix," then install a local, not network, printer using the LPR port on the Windows machines. Share the printer so all Windows users can use it. Hope this helps.
