Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know nothing about SUSE, but with our RH systems, I use http://localhost:631 and only http://localhost:631. The RH print configuration tends to do things like reset the port number back to 9100 for those older printers that don't default to HP's port 9100.
Also, up through at least RH EL 4, RH's printer configuration has IMHO never been CUPS-friendly. Perhaps you are having the same problem in SUSE.
I suggest picking one configuration or the other. My choice would be CUPS' interface. Delete the printers from SUSE. Or, try the other way around.
BTW, Ubuntu's print configuration is very friendly, but I still prefer the CUPS interface.
The printer that I am using for testing is an HP Deskjet 6540, connected to my linux system. I will eventually be connecting printer to 4 XP stations using Anzio.
As far as a connection string, Linux connection is 'USB port(serial=MY4833POPY040).
Now, I enter http://localhost 631/ I get 404 not found, when I add printers to that string, I see the printers screen but no images.
Also the printers are all "Paused".
I just noticed that one of the printers did not have a location. I copied one from one of the other printers. Now I get printer not hooked up. It shows parallel to the HP, but I am on USB, which will be how the other printer will be connected.
