Not sure what the 'lpinfo' command does. But a parallel printer installed under CUPS should certainly show up as parallel:/dev/lp0.
Check the output of 'lsmod' for kernel module 'lp'. If it's not there you could try loading it with 'modprobe lp'. It should automatically also load the 'parport' module. Then see if you can find your printer with the CUPS interface described in the previous post.
