If your printer is at lp0 that would certainly explain why you can't
print. However, I have no idea why it would assume lp1, since the default
normally is lp0...

The modules should be inserted automatically; try lsmod and see
if the lp module is inserted. if not, cd to the modules directory
(/lib/modules/2.1.312/whatever subdirectory lp.o is in) and insmod lp.o
looks like lpd is running, so likely the module is inserted.
The chief cause of problems is solutions.
