I would think from your description that the issue is that neither cupsd
nor smb daemons are set to run at startup.

get a virtual console (command line)
su to root (su -)
chkconfig cups on
chkconfig smb on

and see what happens after the next restart.

otherwise, it's possible that the problem is with cups.conf itself.

Try this...

reboot
open a virtual console (command line)
su to root (su -)
cp /etc/cups/cupsd.conf /tmp/cupsd.conf
cp /etc/cups/printers.conf /tmp/printers.conf

then do whatever it is you do to make printer sharing work again
then back to the virtual console
diff -u /etc/cups/cupsd.conf /tmp/cupsd.conf
diff -u /etc/cups/printers.conf /tmp/printers.conf

let us know the output of those commands (this will tell us what changed
if anything)
