I guess my point here is that how is an end user supposed to know this, when
it isn't integrated correctly into the tool set we're putting out for
managing printers on the desktop.

When I said CUPS, i meant that generally, not specially using your
browser on port 631. I was assuming that system-congig-printer
interacts with CUPS. WIth those assumptions in place, once the daemon
detects the printer, all you need to is add a printer, however you
feel comfortable, and it should appear in the list of addable
printers. No special magic. As I mentioned earler. All this happened
for me in FC6 automatically upon installtion.
