Setting CUPS to print the first page last (reverse)

Hey, I've searched this forum and found several threads almost exactly like this one. However, none of them seem to have been answered satisfactorily.

I'd love to print stuff in reverse order, (first page last), and I've tried as many little options in printers.conf and cupsd.conf as I could find. None of them worked, and I don't know if that's just because I got them wrong, or put them in the wrong file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think there is a way to do that in cupsd.conf but I would just go to "printers and faxes" on your 2k box, click properties then select the option for "print last page first"
