Deskjet 920C and CUPS Freezing

Okay so heres the deal, i am running Gentoo linux and have emerged CUPS foomatice hpijs, and i have been tryign to get my deskjet to work for the past week or so. I can print via

cat test.txt > /dev/usb/lp0

so i know my printer seen and working fine. I want to use cups so i can set it up with samba and print via windows also. So when i try to install via the command li editor lpadmin its hangs until i ctrl+c it, and if i try the web-admin tool it hangs and will not complete the installing printer stage. As far as i can tell no one else is having a problem like this, i'm been to google gentoo forums here looking for anythign that would help me out But so far i havent found anything. Any help would be appriciated.
