[lug] setting up CUPS....

I decided to try CUPS, but nothing is printed.  It's an HP LJ1200 on the 
parallel port, I specified everything on the web admin page, manually 
specified the correct PPD file with lpadmin.  Still, nothing. I don't 
run either KDE or Gnome, but the docs said that it's wizards are helpful 
but not necessary.

Has anyone else had this problem?  The printer works fine under LPRNG, 
but some sites say that I can get better quality/faster performance if I 
use CUPS & PPD instead of feeding a raw PS stream across the parallel port.
