Hello, Again :)
This is getting kind of old :( I went to print something, and my
printing configuration was gone! After a few feeble attempts at fixing
it, I rebooted, tried few other things, no luck. Force installed all
three CUPS rpm's. This time it didn't work :( Now I get this error
when I attempt to print a test page:
There was a problem sending CUPS test page
to 'SamsungML1250LaserPrinter' queue:
lpr: unable to print file: client-error-not-found
For now, I am totally lost :( But, I'm not giving up. Any help you can
give me is greatly appreciated.

P.S.: I really don't understand: I printed three test pages, one of
those was an OpenOffice.org document. Then my printer dissapeared...
