I assume you are using cups. Have you started it?

What do you get from:
netstat -nlp

http://localhost:631 isn't the only way to set up your printer, but it is the BEST way, IMHO.
Like other poster said make sure that /etc/rc.d/rc.cups is set to start at boot. It has to be executable, easiest way is to open a terminal, cd to /etc/rc.d and type in dir. If it's yellow it starts at boot if not su to root and type in:
Code:
chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
Now it will start at boot. If you had to do that, you will now need to start cupsd. You can do that, again while logged into a root terminal:
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start
Log out as root and exit terminal.
Open web browser and type in http://localhost:631 in the address bar and when prompted for a username and password use root and the root's password. That should get you in.

HTH,
MMYoung

Also, check if your loopback "device" is active (up).

Logged as root, type:

Code:
# ifconfig
If you see something like:

Code:
lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:48 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:48 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:8893 (8.6 Kb)  TX bytes:8893 (8.6 Kb)
it means that you can make connections to yourself.

Otherwise, active the loopback with:

Code:
# ifconfig lo up
Then try again to reach localhost:631.
