Log in as root and run
# /sbin/chkconfig --list cups
This will list the run level status of cups.
To turn on cups during booting add it to the system services with
# /sbin/chkconfig --add cups
Different distributions have different GUI tools for such settings, but the above method should work on all Linux systems.
