Question CUPS boot-up messages

Hi everyone,
On boot-up I get a ton of messages similar to this from cups:

modprobe: Can't locate module /dev/usb/lp0
I get these messages for just about every printer device possible, except /dev/lp0, because that is the only one I use (and it works fine). So, these messages aren't really that big of a deal, but if someone could let me know how I tell cups to not to try to load such modules, I'd appreciate it.

In /etc/modules.autoload yous hould have a file for every major kernel you use. (I have kernel-2.4, kernel-2.5 & kernel-2.
Look at those files, and check if any of them contains /dev/usb/lp0
If it does.. just remove it

I checked those files and no Cups references were in them.

Any further help is appreciated.

I have the exact same problem and I haven't been able to solve it. I've read in the gentoo forums something about loading cups until the last boot runlevel but I don't know how to do that.
