Printer Setup in Suse 9.1 with KDE


I need some help setting up my HP PSC 2100 printer for use in KDE.

Yast recognizes it automatically hooked up to the USB port. But I'm not really sure how to configure it to actually print from Open Office or Kword. (Open Office prefered as my resumes are formatted for it already.)

Tried to setup a printer using Kprinter. I can use the printer setup wizard and am cool right up to the ponit where it asks for authorization in form of a username and password. And that's where I get stuck as I have no idea what username and password I'm supposed to use. I've tried every username/password combo on this PC and nothing works. Anyone wanna show me the light?

I set up my HP Deskjet 3325 in YaST and I was able to just go into open office or any other application and just click print and it was all set up for me.

That not really what I'm looking for unfortuanately. I can go into root and setup Kprinter with no issues. I can print and all is good. But I can't get Kprinter to carry over to my user accounts. And I don't want to log into root to print everytime. I tried adding a Kprinter while in the user account I use, but at the end it asks for authorization in the form of a username/password combo. And those 2 things I do not have. or at least I don't know what they should be.
