I apologize for entering so abruptly in this thread.
I have cupsys and cupsys-bsd (and many many other printing-related packages) 
installed but I am not able to connect to http://localhost:631(as root). I 
can see Cups starting at boot-time.

What could be the reason? What is the "proper" way of setting cupsd.conf for a 
home computer with HP printer connected to the computer through USB? (USB 
modules already loaded)
