Have you done:
adduser usrname lpadmin	;Adds the user "usrname" to the group "lpadmin" in
			;the /etc/group file so usrname can admin CUPS.

Is CUPS already setup properly, and printing properly from a local printer?

See the above in: KDE-Debian HowTo for KDE2 & Debian3=Woody X86.

If any of this fixes the problem for you, would you please reply to this msg
on this list & let me/us know?  Thanks.  :)
