For your printer problem install system-config-printer.i686 then you should get the printer config tool under admin and also make sure you got cups installed.
Then when you add a new printer in the printer config tool it will search for any printer connected then you just have to choose the right driver for your printer. If your printer is not in the selection they give you, you can also install hpijs.i686, gutenprint.i686 and gutenprint-cups.i686 for additional HP and other printer drivers.
If the driver is still not there go check on hp's site for the linux driver, install that and do the new printer process again and the correct printer should then be there.
Hope this help.
