Printer problems

Am trying to install a network printer on RedHat 9 and when I try to print a test page I get the error :

There was a problem sending CUPS test page
to 'printer' queue:

lpr: unable to print file: server-error-service-unavailable

I have cups installed infact all the printing packages. Am also installing the printer as a networked jetdirect. All the other RedHat machines have the same configurations as the one am trying to install. Any suggestion
My printer is a HP Laserjet 4100.

I ran into a similar issue. Except we were using Redhat Enterprize 3, we could print everywhere on the network except for through our Apps server.
Don't know if that will help, but good luck.
