On a default Debian Woody installation there is no password required
to print files. Access is enabled only for localhost. Also, the admin
user needs to be in the group 'lpadmin' so, for example, on my system
I had to execute 'adduser shyamal lpadmin' to add the user 'shyamal'
to the 'lpadmin' group. Then the user 'shyamal' had to logout and log
back in before the group privilege came in effect.
I hope this helps some. See the file /usr/share/doc/cupsys/README.Debian.gz
