Virtual Printers/Printer Files

Howdy all, just found this forum and had a question regarding virtual printers/printer files (no actual physical printer involved.) I've tried to create a printer file in /tmp called page warn (/tmp/page_warn.) I've tried doing it using Webmin, and manually using lpadmin and get the same error:
"lpadmin: add-printer (set device) failed: client-error-not-possible" I've done some looking and can't seem to find any reference to it in relation to a printer file. In fact, I can't seem to find any reference to any printer files anywhere with Mandrake. Anyone got any ideas?
