I am not using the Cups web page printer setup.  I have tried both.
George (the system-configure-printer gui) and Cups are supposed to be
equivalent in FC6.  (system-configure-printer gui is quite a mouthful,
so I just call the little printer icon George).

At least that is what I have been told Fedora is striving for.  In any
case, Cups gives me no joy, in fact it makes things worse by not
printing anything ( but I haven't looked into why).
