    I've got a new centos5 box running cups 1.2.11 rpms. I'm migrating my 
old configuration over and am confused about the location of the ppd files. 
I've got a ppd file for my printer, a deskjet 5150c USB, and i'm wondering a 
few things. First of all do i put that ppd in /usr/share/cups/model/ or in 
/etc/cups/ppd? Second, do i need the gimp-print rpm? Finally, i've got the 
cups server wide open, anyone on my local network can have access to it, 
this when i get it all set up is not what i want. I want local network users 
to be able to print but not get in to any of the admin functions, configs, 
etc. I'd like to tighten that down with allow users and ssl, but the last 
time i atempted this i ended up breaking everything and nothing would 
authenticate or print. Does anyone have a setup like this?
