Trouble with cups/installing printer on LE2005

I downloaded the LE2005 Mini cd & installed from that, I then used urpmi to add repositories & install KDE etc. The other day I tried to add a printer through MCC & told it I wanted to load cups so I could share the printer. I went off for quite some time & finaly came back & said "cups could not be installed". If I search for cups packages to add, only some driver or devel packages show up, & if I go into remove software & search for cups, it shows that cups is installed. When I go back & try to add a printer through MCC though, I get the same result about not being able to install cups. Any suggestions? Thanks

Remove CUPS and start from scratch by reinstalling it. Also try choosing different URPMI sources. I've gotten some faulty packages once in awhile from certain mirrors. Kind of weird.
