Lexmark Z25 Error when checkpc -f

bash-2.05b# checkpc -f
Warning - lp: CATASTROPHIC ERROR! queue 'lexmarkz25-z35' also has spool directory '/var/spool/lpd/lexmark'

What does this mean? I'm a complete newbie to printing with Linux. I'm running Slackware by the way.

maybe you can search through the linux printing website and see if you can find any leads on getting the z25 working....i personally also have a z25 and i cannot for the life of me get it to work....others that i have seen that also have this printer, can only get it to the point of spitting out blank pieces of paper...
so if by chance you do get this printer to work, it would be very very appreciated if you posted how you done so...
and just to point out, linux has terrible support for lexmark good luck
