Printing from Samba through win7 pc's

I am replacing windows XP computers with Windows 7 PC's. These PC's are on a network that has a linux server using Samba 2.0.7 installed on a Redhat 7.1 Server printing to a shared printer on the PC. I have the settings the same but I am getting authentication errors when sending a print job. What is different in Windows 7 that prevents it from logging in and and how can I corrent it.

I apologize, I got it to work after finding the name of the computer had changed slightly. Once that was corrected in the hosts and the .config file it worked perfectly.
