Yup! I have often had to re-install my network printer when I've changed OS - I'm thinking that the config for it is sitting in the / (root) partition so your upgrade wiped out the settings - It may still appear in apps when you're doing stuff in the user account of your install, but if it's not set up (through CUPS or something) then it ain't gonna work. Or maybe the new FC4 install has selected the wrong driver for it, so I'd think that you'd need to reconfigure it anyway.
If it is the driver, you might need to look up to see what the printer supports e.g. my HP 4050 has a driver available from CUPS, but as it supports PostScript 3 I just tell CUPS during the setup that it's a postscript printer and it just goes straight for "generic postscript printer".
Erm I don't recall whether it's http or https that you use to access cups - try both (http(s)://127.0.0.1:631 that is or it might be either the http/https and ://localhost:631 either way have a google for cups or just search here at LQ for it I've seen lots of posts for it).
