Lets start at the beginning...
Start the printer configuration tool (system-config-printer). Do you see a printer icon?
What device ID do you see for your USB parallel port adapter? /dev/usblp0 or /dev/usblp1

When you click on the add button the devices column has a line called "Enter URI". When you select "Enter URI" a box is displayed on the right. This is where you enter:

parallel:/dev/usblp0

Select forward
Select HP
Select forward
Select LaserJet 1100
Select Driver
Select Apply

Talking solved not sure how

Thanks very much for your answers, I have just noticed today that I had a reply.

Anyways, I must have updated something on the computer in the last few weeks because now the printer was recognoised as a raw printer and I was then able to put in the URI (thanks MichaeL) and select my printer, great, thanks again everyone
