Well I have a box which I installed from d-i RC1 some time ago (when that
was current) with the base system only, and then did nothing with.  Two
weeks ago I started using it as a desktop machine.
I did approximately (with sarge in /etc/apt/sources.list)
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install x-window-system-core kdebase mozilla-firefox openoffice.org
apt-get install cupsys-bsd cupsys-driver-gimpprint gs-esp
and installed a home-compiled 2.6.11 kernel.

I do not have xprt, xprt-common or xprt-xprintorg installed and can print
fine from both Firefox and OOo.
