> I am connecting my HP Deskjet 1220c to my G4 Mac (running OS 10.3.7).  
After having discovered Gimp-print as the solution to connectivity 
problems I downlaoded and installed it.  I was able to make the 
connection and successfully print via USB.  However, on the network 
(Ethernet) mode I can set up the printer, but when I send a docuemtn to 
print nothing happens - I get a message of "looking for printer."  Any 
ideas on what's going on here?

Here's the relevant section of my /etc/cupsd.conf.  See cupsd.conf(5) 
and the CUPS administrator's manual, and adjust to suit your needs.
