[CALUG] Samba shared printer

I am using Samba to make the printers on my Linux machines available to
the XT using vendor provided drivers running in the Windows box.  To do
this, I configured a raw queue.  Basically I added a printer and did not
install any drivers for it, but chose raw.

Also in /etc/cups/mime.types and /etc/cups/mime.convs there are lines:

   #application/octet-. . .

These need to be uncommented.

Doing it this was, all rendering is done in the Windows box by the
vendor supplied driver and raw, binary image data goes over the net to
the Samba server.  Yes, it is slow, really slow.
