Are you using udev ? which kernel is your system
running ?
Thnks for the help, Welly.  I really appreciate it!

I don't know if I'm using udev.  What is it?  My kernel version is 2.2.  
Several days ago, this happen to me.
The solusion is : cd /dev
                  /sbin/MAKEDEV usb
I did this and it did create /dev/usb which is a directory full of lp0 etc.  Is there a simple command like 'echo "OK" > /dev/usb/lp0' that will print something?
I'm running sid kernel 2.6.5.
