KDE, CUPS and USB printer

I'm trying to install a USB printer (Brother HL 2030) for use with CUPS. 
The KDE (3.4.1) part of this is that I'm trying to add the printer 
using the printer wizard. There, no printer is shown below the USB 
node. I'm wondering if there should be anything there. I have no prior 
experience using USB and I don't know what the debianly correct way to 
handle it is as I haven't installed a fresh system for ages; my current 
unstable installation has evolved over the years. USB kernel (2.6.11) 
modules are available and I can manually modprobe usblp. I appreciate 
any hints and pointers.
