For me it looks more like a hardware communication or kernel problem.

Is the printer on parallel or on USB?

Is the printer turned on?

Is the cable OK?

Does printerdrake detect it when you click "Add printer" and let then 
local printers be searched for?

What is the output of "lsusb -vvv"?

What are the permissions of /dev/lp0 or /dev/usb/lp0?

Are the kernel modules loaded ("modprobe usblp" or "modprobe lp"?

Remember to restart CUPS when you have fixed something.
