process is getting killed automatically

ok I have installed cups and all of its cronies to work fine... I then needed to get my Canon bubblejet printer to work so i can share it with SMB. Anyways CUPS is installed on my RH7.2 machine and the process continues to die after i start the daemon.

i go

$service cups restart ; ps x
i get this
123 tty1 R 0.00 /usr/sbin/cupsd

what does the stat mean?? Ive been looking for this everywhere and the Process DOES start for a second..
then check the again
ps x nothing is there???

$man ps
type /stat inside man page
and return until you get this

D uninterruptible sleep (usually IO)
R runnable (on run queue)
S sleeping
T traced or stopped
Z a defunct ("zombie") process
