Can't print from RH9/Ximian with CUPS to HP Laserjet 8000N

Hello penguin enthusiasts,

I'm trying to get my computer to print to a HP Laserjet 8000N on my local network. I can see cupsd running in the process list. I can set up a printer in Nautilus, and OpenOffice will start to print to the correct printer. The document shows up in the print queue under Nautilus, but the listed state just toggles back and forth between "pending: none" and "printing: job-printing." It stays in the queue until I cancel the job.

From the choices in Nautilus, it looks like I should be using the foomatic + hpijs printer drivers to print.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this? How would I check that the drivers are actually installed and working?

You could always take a look at you cups log files in /var/log/cups

I set the LogLevel for cupsd to debug, and this showed up in my logs:

Looks like I'm missing something in /usr/lib/cups/backend/ What do I do about this?
