After manually running
sudo service smbd reload
sudo service smbd restart
smbd stop/waiting
smbd start/running, process 2878

The printers now appear

At this point, this is what is in the log.smbd file
cat log.smbd

I now go to the XP machine, open add a new printer, browse for printer.
I can see my Linux box and see the printer.
When I select the printer I can see the Comment and Status is "Ready"
Select next. I says I do not have the correct print drivers do i want to install locally. ( this is correct i did not install them on the linux box )
I select the correct drivers and click next. A 'Connect to Printer' dialog box appears with the message
'Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly or the printer has lost its connection to the server"

At this point the log file looks likes this ( it has not changed )
