MandrivaLinux 2006 - HP 845c printing errors

I am using MandrivaLinux 2006 (KDE 3.4), and a HP 845c printer.
For some time, I have been able to print things with no problems.
I recently formatted the PC, and now, I can't get this to print always. I get this error:

A print error occurred. Error message received from system:

Unable to start child print process. The KDE print server (kdeprintd) could not be contacted. Check that this server is running.

I think I did something to get it printing again, some wizard to configure it. It worked, now it's failed again, and I haven't rebooted again or anything.

using the configure my computer link to the DrakX control panel, you added the printer to the system and allowed users to use it?

does cups get started during the boot?

For the first question, yes, I allowed other uses to use this.
What is odd, it has worked flawlessly for so long, and then, it won't print sometimes.
Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. After a format, I haven't noticed anything so far.
As for CUPS, I'm assuming, not sure what that is.
