HP 5550 & CUPS & (USB | PAR)

I just purchased the new HP 5550 Deskjet, however, I'm having major problems getting things to work. First, I install CUPS, hpijs, ghostscript, and the ppd file. It looks like cupsomatic and foomatic scripts were
already installed(or upon installation of those mentioned)

When I configure the printer through the CUPS web or command line, and try to test print, it says that everything
worked fine, but nothing actualy printed.
This happens when I attempt to use the printer as a parallel or USB printer.

In the /var/log/cups/error_log, I found the following:

D [06/Oct/2002:00:24:23 -0500] perl: warning: Setting locale failed.

I am unable to determine if I'm having a software problem, or hardware configuration problem.
If you need any other info, please let me know.
