CUPS with Samba and the HP PSC 1200 printer, help!

I am running Slackware Linux 10.0, and my sister is running Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition. She has an HP PSC 1200 USB printer that I am able to see from my Linux machine via smbclient and from other machines on the network, Windows and UNIX alike.

I have setup CUPS using http://localhost:631, successfully adding my sister's printer to my configuration. When I print a test page, my sister's printer begins to spool and her Window's printer status program even shows that my document is coming through. Just as the status of my document changes from spooling to printing, the entire operation stops and the printer just hangs there, saying printing. Though, like I said, nothing is actually printed.

Any ideas on why the document is only getting spooled and not printed?

I've included some extra information that may help...
(my cups setup page)

Code used to setup printer:
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p KyleePrinter -v smb://NOT_REAL_USER:NOT_REAL_PASS/third_testicle/hppsc120 -P /home/ateam/stuff/ppd/HP-PSC_1200-hpijs.ppd
/usr/bin/enable KyleePrinter
/usr/sbin/accept KyleePrinter
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -d KyleePrinter
Some output of lpstat-cups -a -d -o -p -r -u -v:
KyleePrinter accepting requests since Jan 01 00:00
system default destination: KyleePrinter
printer KyleePrinter is idle.  enabled since Jan 01 00:00
scheduler is running
device for KyleePrinter: smb://third_testicle/hppsc120
Thanks in advance!
