You'll need the parport and parport_pc (assuming i386) modules installed
to install the lp module.
Then, here are my notes from my potato install (YMMV):
# apt-get install lpr magicfilter djtools
# apt-get install gs-aladdin gsfonts a2ps enscript
# magicfilterconfig --force
(/dev/lp0 -- not /dev/lp1 which is the default)
