But whatever print out sends from the client is not printed on printer. Printer print blank pages(when it printing ,feel that it print). Whats the problem?

Hi,
There are few things you should ensure to get the printing done from the client.
1) Sharing the printer to everyone.
2) Installing proper drivers on the server.
3) Install additional drivers for the clients i.e. drivers of the printer of WIN 98 etc in the printer properties there will be a tab with "additional drivers"
4) Check whether "print spooler service is started in the services"

Hope this helps.
