Printing Problem with Epson Stylus Color 440 connected to usb port


I have an Epson printer connected to a usb port. The printer is not recognized, nor do I have the knowledge to set it up via the webadmin for CUPS.

I need to know how to configure the device to be recognized...
/dev/usb/lp0 or something similiar I think.

Then I need to know how to convince CUPS to talk with the device...
I have various options such as AppSocketHP JetDirect and others, but I don't know which one to use.

Any information is very appreciated.

Not all epsom printers are supported in CUPS. Stylus 440? Lets see... I see four drivers listed for this printer. So what is wrong with the add-printer dialog?

<looks at OP profile>
I do hope you are not trying this in RH7 ...
