Will not make edit.
Be sure to restart your machine after you make changes. So many times in the past I had failed to do this only to find out that when I restarted the networking problem was solved. Even if I had stopped and restarted smb,nmb and wins services and logged in and out again.
You can edit the samba.conf directly file using su - password then the command gedit from the terminal. This will open up the text editor. Save the original as smb.bk or something so if you run into trouble you can always go back.
Location is /etc/samba/smb.conf
I had problems with selinux on the permissions of the shared folders the smb.conf file tells you how to set this. sorry just remembered that bit.
I remember what the problem was with the printer. It was nothing to do with my f8 set up directly system>administration>printing and choosing the samba/ cups option. It was solved when I did a restart on the Vista machine that the brother is connected to. I like you had problems and no matter what I seemed to do could not get the printer working. Then for a completely non connected reason I had to do a restart on this machine. When I later returned to sort out the printing on the f8 (just tried to print out a test page) it was working fine.
