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)

Install apache or boa and use a browser:

lynx http://localhost/doc/
