[cups] How to find & install HP LaserJet 600 M601 PPD on RedHat Enterprise Linux 6 to print postscript

You should install the „hplip“ package (I suppose there is an installable package from RedHat).
That contains 
–	a cups filter named „hpps“ that implements additional features like job saving and secure printing,
–	a PPD for use this printer as a PostScript printer.
As far as I con see, the only possibility for hplip to modify cups.conf is to use the utility to set the log level to debug
and back again, which is better done by using the cups utility cupsctl.

Hope this helps
