Never ending password on CUPS admin screen


I upgraded my cups server from Fedora4 to Centos5. Some of my printers added just fine by putting them in the cups.conf, but some didn't add correctly. When I go to the cups admin page, it prompts me for username and password. I enter these, and I am granted access. When I try to add a printer, I am prompted again for username and password, and nothing I try will satisfy it. Any ideas?

*The username for cups must be : root

( Just delete the suggested user and type root )
