make sure that the 'user' printing (there is a user even if it is a
'guest' - it would be whichever user guest is being mapped to) has write
privileges to the 'spool' directory that you created in smb.conf

see 
http://samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/CUPS-printing.html#cups-exam-simple

in the example shown above...

chmod 777 /var/spool/samba -R
