Since this is a standalone machine I did both the above and still no luck.
I am trapping the output of the hpset and it says is still can't open the
/dev/lp1 device, it just cat's it to it.

#ls -l /usr/local/bin/hpset
  11 -rwxr-sr-x   1 root     lp          10445 Jul 10 16:47 /usr/local/bin/hpset*
#ls -l /dev/lp1
   0 crw-rw-rw-   1 root     lp         6,   1 May 28 17:16 /dev/lp1

I am really confused.  As root it works, as a regular user it works but as
the printer daemon it does not work!

Thanks for any input,
