Now I have much more information to present. Firstly I found some odd 
things in /var/log/cups/error_log, there are reams of "Local 
authentication certificate not found!" error messages, so much in fact 
that the log file grows several KB every second, literally thousands of 
these messages. When I try to print I get something like:

Seems like it thinks my password is bad, but it shouldn't need a 
password, and in Win XP I never gave it a password and it still prints. 
Just in case I am getting something wrong I've put the essential parts 
of my smb.conf below. I haven't included any of the default sections, 
and tried to include only the things that I customized:

> browseable = yes

> public = yes

Clues much appreciated :)
