Printer installed with CUPS- Unable to print

Hi All,
I recently installed debian-woody on a  PI, 233MHz PC after wiping
RH6.2 which was there earlier. For configuring an old dotmatrix
printer  which works with Epson FX105 drivers in windows, I used
printtool facility.
In debian, I invoked CUPS, (http://localhost:631), configured the dot
matrix printer(Epson 9 pin dot matrix drivers) and printed a test
page. It came alright.

I opened kword and wanted to take a print out. In the printing program
currently used tab, I did not see CUPS listed, only the other 4
i) Generic UNIX LPD printing system
ii) LPR/LPRng printing system
iii) RLPR printing system
iv) External printing program(generic)

I tried printing thru all these, but printing did not take place ,
terminated with various error messages.

I have installed CUPS. How to print thru CUPS in an external program ,
say, kword or Open Office (which also suffered the same fate).

Pl help.
