If you're using XP, save yourself the trouble of Samba and printing and
go straight to the CUPS server. Make sure you have CUPS allowing
requests for your local subnet, and set the Windows network path to:
That will get one layer of abstraction out of the mix and allow you to
get a (possibly) sane error report out of CUPS.
