Printing via Samba on SCO 3.0 ODT Enterprise

Hi out there!
I have Samba 1.9.04 running on SCO 3.0 ODT Enterprise Server. The
binaries installed without a problem. I can access the file and print
services which I configured in smb.conf from my two boxes running
NT Workstation 3.51. It prints just perfectly from the NT boxes.

I can also use the same file services from my Win 95 boxes
and I can also configure a network printer on the Win 95 boxes using
the Win 95 Printer Setup Assistant. At least the Printer Setup Assistant
does not object to the HP Laser Printer which I specify during the setup
process giving the UNC name.
But: the very moment when I actually try to print to the HP Laser
Printer 4 Plus from one of my Win 95 boxes I get an error message which
effectivly says:

      Print Job aborted with unknown system error!

On the other hand if I configure Win95 to print to a file and if I then copy that file to LPT1: (which is connected to \\server\hplaser) using the command "copy fileName LPT1: /b" the file is sent via Samba to the printer and it's a perfect print out!
I reckon it's a problem with Win95!

Any hints or suggestions are welcome!      

Maybe some newer Samba binaries for SCO 3.0 ODT Enterprise Server,
possibly Samba Version 1.9.15 or higher will do the trick?!

I'm not sure, but your problem *might* be in the settings for the printer in Windows 95.  On the Details tab, check the options inside Spool Settings.  You might need to switch from EMF to RAW and/or print directly to printer instead of spooling.  That's what I've had to do in similar circumstances.
