Printing with SBS 2008 and a mac

We recently upgraded to SBS 2008 from SBS 2003. We have several printers hanging off a Server 2003 std that work fine. We have mainly windows machines but we have a few macs. All the macs are not memeber of the domain but can print fine, problem is if I intrduce a new mac to the network and set up a printer on it i keep getting asked for a username and password now. I enter the details of the user and it adds the printer. When i print nothing happens, so i check the print qeue and the job id there but in brackets it says (waiting for authentication).....any ideas? I am also getting this issue when adding new windows users too

I know this is not really your question, but...

I recommend against using the server as a print server anyway. I setup networks to using IP printing directly to the printer (that is if the printer is a network printer). If you still want to use the server then consider setting up the Internet printing and make sure the permissions are set correctly there. That way you have the added benefit of printing from outside the office.
