I found that such a usb interface directory did not exist, and so
created it, and modified my printcap accordingly as you suggest.

I get a clean return from # checkpc, but find that the lpd does not
know of the change I made:

  $ lpq
  Printer: lp@teufel 'Generic dot-matrix printer entry'
   Queue: 1 printable job

   Unspooler: pid 27915 active

Shouldn't this be /etc/init.d/lprng restart ?
