That's completely immaterial. The 'lp' driver is just to support a
printer on a parallel port - and if you have a Mac, I doubt you have one
of those.

What do you mean, you can't configure a new one? If you go into "Admin",
you should be able to add a printer. How is the printer in question
attached to your computer? Serial port, USB, network?
