Description Brad Smith 2007-05-25 16:20:46 EDT
Description of problem:

The [printers] share in the default RHEL5 smb.conf points to /usr/spool/samba,
but printers are stored in /var/spool/samba. This means that no printers are
automatically shared. Changing path=/usr to path=/var fixes the problem.
