getting priniter to print

I am pulling my hair out because I had a windows box printing on a Ububtu computer but the hard drive on the ubuntu crashed and now I can't get it to print again. I've been talking with the local LUG for a month and they can't seem to help any.

I've played with smb.conf (a) but the LUG says that it appears to be proper.
If you look at it you will see that it is the sample smb.conf with a few minor additions. I added the 'opening ports' section under 'global' and I added the 'interfaces' under the 'networking' section. I'm not to sure if that one is right. It says 'interfaces = 192.168.0.2/24 eth0'. Is the '24' right?

Could you help this poor old soul?

# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the

# are not shown in this example

Help! Trying to install Ubuntu over or Alongside Windows 7, can't get it to boot! I've read things, I've tried things, help?

Okay here it is;

Laptop Samsung Qx411

Booted to Bios changed the boot order several times, USB & CD 1st, always boots to windows 7

Used the linked pen drive utility on the Ubuntu page, unpacked the ISO via pen drive util, looked fine, all bios USB boot options were over the LAST option HDD, still boots to WIN 7

Burned 3 CDs, Ubuntu 11X (latest version two discs NO BOOT) and Ubuntu 10x (once no boot) Used POWER ISO to unpack the ISO to the disc at the lowest speed 10x. The first two burn attempts were the native windows 7 burn program which does not allow you to select burn speed

CD Appears to be written to, the data was verified each time, still boots to HD WIND 7

Any ideas? I've installed it inside of windows and get the Bootloader, Windows 7 or Ubuntu, Windows 7 boots fine, If I choose Ubuntu I get;

"Windows failed to start, a recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

Insert your windows instillation disk and select repair computer.

Increase home folder disk space ubuntu 11.10

Hello all,
I recently discovered ubuntu and I'm loving it. I'm planning to use it as my primary Os. My only problem now is that my home available disk space is less than 10GB and that really keeps me from working on large files. I worked on this for 3 days in vain. I burnt a gparted live CD but don't really know what to do with it(i.e which drive is windows and which one is ubuntu's...). Here what gparted window reads:

Partition File system mount Point Label Size

/dev/sda1 ntfs Recovery 9.00 GiB
/dev/sda2 ntfs System Reserved 100.00 MiB
/dev/sda3 ntfs host 456.67 GiB
unallocated unallocated 1.02 MiB

All I really want is a large home folder in ubuntu, like 200GB at least. Please help. I've heard of ext3, ext4 etc...And also i used wubi for the dual boot install.

Thank you...
