I have solved the problem successfully. The key to the solution was the
execution of \\sun\print$ from the windows start execute thingy, that
did not work. Running \\sun however worked and gave me access to the
pinters and faxes subdirectory mouse right click in this area and
choose something like server properties. Then if you have configured
all right and have added printer admin = user with the right
credentials, you may be able to add new printer drivers, after that you
can follow the samba handbook and all works like charm.

Actually I should write this in clear text and add to the Howto
collection. However I do not have time at the moment.
