samba,fc3 a shared printer and winxp...

the topic says it all people.. how do i share a printer and make it work across winxp from fc3? its physically connected via the linux box, and people on winxp can now see the printer... i think this is the part of smb.conf that is needed to be configured, but whenever people try and print to it, the winxp system keeps asking for drivers to be installed....

i relise it has to be set into raw mode.. which i thought i had done, any thoughts on what i am doing wrong?

smb.conf
Code:
# if you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
	printcap name = /etc/printcap
	load printers = yes

# It should not be necessary to spell out the print system type unless
# yours is non-standard. Currently supported print systems include:
# bsd, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx
	printing = cups

# This option tells cups that the data has already been rasterized
	cups options = raw

this is seriously starting to fustrate me a bit, for some reason the winxp client keeps telling me i need to download the drivers.. so we tried to just do what it says in the tutorial you gave me, we added the printer correctly, but for some reason it still doesnt want to print... its a HP Deskjet 5160
