I just tried those links you mentioned, and in each case all the browser would display was the message "NOT FOUND" in big, bold letters, and yet I can get to everything else on the internet without any problem. But for what it's worth, the code you suggested DOES start CUPS on my computer.

I tried to manually activate CUPS using Super VASM, but when Firefox started it displayed the message "NOT FOUND" in big bold letters.

silly question but is CUPS running? in your browser go to

localhost:631

and you should get a page of CUPS settings.
if it is not running issue this command as root
Code:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cups start

you may have to check mime types too in
Code:
/usr/share/cups/mime/mime.types

cups has a nifty html page, try putting this in your browser and do abit of reading

/usr/doc/cups-1.4.6/help/man-mime.types.html

to start cups during boot put this at the bottom of
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.local

Code:
CUPS.
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups ]; then
# Start CUPS:
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start
elif [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.lprng ]; then
# Start LPRng (lpd):
. /etc/rc.d/rc.lprng start
fi

I hesitate to say this, but as of right now CUPS seems to have stopped working on my system completely, because when I try to print a test page, the following window pops up:

point browser to
http://localhost:631/

default bahavior in 7.1 is that cups should be started automagically through
Code:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cups

could someone verify if this is also true for 7.0
if not than this should start it at boot
Code:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups

Well, I DID figure out how to manually activate cups (via the Internet), unfortunately, however, it gets deactivated whenever I log out, so how do I fix it so that I don't have to manually reactivate it every time I start Linux?

Thanks, but unfortunately I have encountered another problem in that when I tried to activate the printer earlier (using CUPS), I encountered a problem as shown in the two attachments. The first shows the window that came up, and the second shows what happened when I pressed the "Connect" button. So how do I go about activating CUPS in the first place?
