You can use the "Services" program, under System - Administration. Find CUPS and click restart.

Alternatively, as root:
/etc/init.d/cups restart
I hope this helps

Also, look at man chkconfig. FC4 has a nasty habit of removing the CUPS service from the list of services when a new kernel is installed, and you need to do a chkconfig --add cups to get it back into the list of available services. This doesn't happen all the time, only about one of three kernel upgrades.
