What does the output of lsusb mean?


I am trying to install a Lexmark X125 printer on a Suse 9.0 system. In my post in the hardware forum someone suggested I use lsusb to see if the printer was being detected. Below are the results of lsusb:

Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 043d:006d Lexmark International, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 2525:1925
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

And the results of lsusb -v for the printer:
