Desperate - I am having serious problems setting up printers.

I have been using printtool to set up printers on our RH printserver
to share out
to the Macs, Windows and other unix computers on our network. About
ago printtool stopped working. I don't know what to use next.
Using system-config-printer, I
added gc-hp041, HP LaserJet 4050
I applied the changes and exited the gui.
I then issued
service cups restart
[root at SERVER cups]# grep 041 cupsd.conf
[root at SERVER cups]# grep 041 /etc/printcap
[root at SERVER cups]# grep 041 printers.conf
[root at SERVER cups]# uname -r
[root at SERVER cups]# more /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 5)
[root at SERVER cups] rpm -qf /usr/sbin/system-config-printer
Looking at URL http://localhost:631/printers, the gc-hp041
printer is not listed.
gc-hp041 does appear through the program setup.
My main concern is that the printer does not show up as a
shared printers to the Windows computers on my network. This
is a major problem.
smbclient -L SERVER -N
ADMIN$ IPC IPC Service (SERVER - Chemistry
gc-hp106 Printer Created by redhat-config-printer
gc-hp201 Printer Created by redhat-config-printer
How do I fix the problem? Desperate.
printtool, a link to system-config-printer, was working fine until
about a month ago.
