I have not tried it on vista yet.
But I have a vista machine coming in about
a month :( I will have to wait til then to test it.
Hopefully, some people on this list will test it with
vista and report their findings sooner.

Did it also work on vista? Or just from linux or win xp machine.
Another thing is that the printer is allready set in cups and samba
should automaticly make working the printer share. It actually makes
the share and I can see it from my windows machine after logging in to
samba server, can also access files shared on normal fileshare like
users home directory.
[hp deskjet 5600]
printer = raw
comment = HP DeskJet 5600
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = yes
printer name = hpdj-5650w
# Set public = yes IF you want to allow user 'guest' to print
guest ok = no
writable = no
printable = yes
print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r -Phpdj-5650w %s
lpq command = lpq -Phpdj-5650w
lprm command = lprm -Phpdj-5650w %j
lpstat command = /usr/bin/lpstat -t
#Required for XP?
; use client driver = yes
All worked as expected.
Your solution is nice, but it goes past the cups which isn't very
elegant even if it's working correctly. And one to try if the share
still doesn't work in windows xp in addition to vista as there was
some changes to smb-protocol in vista. I Have found some people
complaining about same problem, but haven't find any solutions yet.
Which was why I asked in the list if someone else would have
encountered it and maybe found some other workaround than just using
