Printing over samba

I have problems with printing over samba form Windows NT/2000 machines.
When I am installing printer, I am getting "Access denied" error. As I
was able to understood, this is because samba changed default way of
printing and I must install printer drivers in print$ share.
Actually I do not want to install printer drivers on samba machine and
would prefer to use client drivers for printing. I was able to find,
that I can use "use client driver" in my smb.conf file, but this key is
unknown for my samba installation :
Load smb config files from /opt/samba/lib/smb.conf
Unknown parameter encountered: "use client driver"
Ignoring unknown parameter "use client driver"
Processing section "[printers]"
No path in service printers - using /tmp
Processing section "[print$]"
Loaded services file OK.
I am using latest samba from www.samba.org (2.2.1a) on Solaris 8. So my
first question is - how I can setup samba, that it will not require
printer drivers on samba machine ?
Another question. I was trying to setup print$ share, but I am not able
to load printer drivers. Simply "New driver" is still gray (I logged in
as printer admin, same user is in "write list" for a share). Maybe I
need to setup something additional ? We have about 10 printers
configured, so maybe I need some extra settings ? This is my smb.conf
workgroup = TEST
log file = /var/adm/samba.log
lock directory = /var/tmp/samba/
share modes = yes
security = SHARE
encrypt passwords = True
smb passwd file = /opt/samba/private/smbpasswd
username map = /opt/samba/lib/users.map
min password length = 3
load printers = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
local master = no
comment = All
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes
printable = yes
printer admin = martynas
path = /opt/samba/printers
guest ok = yes
browsable = yes
read only = yes
write list = martynas
Any advises will be highly appreciated. I was not able to find proper
solution for this problems on the mailing lists or somewhere else, so I
will surely summarize. Thank you in advance.
