I have found that I need the "use client driver = yes" option enabled
for my wife's XP laptop to print correctly. Additionally, I don't
remember the exact details but sometimes just because a windows
computer gets "Access Denied" when trying to look at the print queue
it will still print fine, but that may not have anything to do with
your specific problem.
