I am not sure I understand correctly - is it that you can not make a
Samba connection to the Linux machine and share the printer that
way, or are you having problems connecting to the jetdirect card?

Maybe I was littlebit unclear. Setup is so that Printer is connected to my F10 machine and shared to network trough samba running on that machine. Then I will try to use my Vista laptop to access thar printer share. This point I get error on vista that it's unable to connect the printer. Printer works fine on Linux.

Normal file shares work without a problem from that server so user and so on is setup correctly. Most probably problem is either in samba access permissions on the Linux or between samba and cups. (So probably in either case I just don't get the config right.)
