I had a problem like this when I moved all our print servers over to CUPS.
What I had to do was to list the printers in the "Exceptions - Do not use
proxy server for addresses beginning with" setting in internet explorer. I
don't know why this should make a difference but after I did this is was OK.
All I do now is setup the printer on the machine as an administrator and
then anyone who logs in can use it. Oh all our clients are Win2k so I just
added the list of print servers to our login script that sets up proxies etc
at login.
