no the address is right. Its more it keeps on coming up with errors saying
cannot connect, access denied. and each time i turn on the server the
comment keeps on changing to something other than what ive got in samba.
just something strange that might have something to so with the problem. and
yet i dont have this problem in win98.

whatswrong with win printer drivers. usually they come with the printer when
you buy it. if you dont have any they can generally be downloaded or windows
can install them. ok they arent perfect but they seem to work.
