Yes, that is correct.  Use Manage jobs for jobs and Manage printers for 
printers - you can modify, configure, or even delete and install 
printers from the web interface.  This is how I usually work.

But, a small warning, you do need to have the access permissions set up 
right.  I have one box where cups won't let me change anything and I 
cannot see what I have configured wrong.  

A great advantage of the web interface is you don't need X running to 
use it -- just access it via lynx (or other text-i/f browser).
