Printers and cups

I am slowly getting the idea that all things in Linux need a config file. Regarding my printer: Can anyone tell me which files need to be amended to use an Epson CX42UX under Suse 8.2. I have /etc/cups, which is a link to /SUSE/etc/cups. There is a file cupsd.config, but every line has a # in front, which means, I think that the line will be ignored.

Can anyone tell me specifically what files I need to amend, other than cupsd.config? Maybe with examples.
Yast2 recognizes my printer as such, but has a problem with the printer server cupsdn saving it says

cups(File)DoRequest error: client-error-not authorized

Printing help

I have used this site with success - they have a lot of help getting printing to work: drivers, how-to's, etc. Good luck!
