Works fine on my Fedora 11 (client) -> Fedora 10 (server) set-up here,
so it's some configuration issue local to you.

This is almost useful, but it has no context at all so I have no idea
what to make of it.

Run the printing troubleshooter: System->Administration->Printing, then

File a bug report against cups, and attach the troubleshoot.txt file you
got from the troubleshooter, as well as an explanation of where the
printer is in relation to you on the network.
