That's why I'm tearing my hair, Aaron.  That is exactly the way I did it, the 
first time around.  It's what I've always done before, and it has always 
worked, but it didn't this time round.

I don't even know whether the present method is working properly.  From the 
laptop I can see the printers and print to them.  This box still has some 
samba issues that I need to look at tomorrow, and it could be that the lack 
of printer connections from this box are also mis-configuration.  If the 
worst comes to the worst I'll delete the server-config-printer profiles and 
start all over again.
