without physically being there and seeing what the actual permission
rights look like, the only difference I see with your global settings
vs. mine is that my create mask is set at 0744 on my printer, now not
sure if that will help you or not but give it a try, you can't be any
worse off that right now. or you could also place your username in the
valid username option field also. I use either webmin or swat to
conigure all that stuff though but i prefer webmin to swat myself.
LINUX==LIVE OR DIE!!!!!!!
