Based on your sig it says Vector 5.1. Never used it so not familiar with it. But this should work with all distros. Goto http://www.cups.org/
and download the latest source. Then follow the install or readme docs within the archived file. My guess would be this.
make install ( run as root )
I use Redhat / Redhat clones so I either install source files or build my own RPMs from SRPM.
Run the following as root
Check to see if ready to go.
Then start the cups service.
Then open a web browser and use address http://127.0.0.1:631
Configure printer. If service starts up and can't access the link then make sure the port is open through the firewall if enabled.
