The config file for the HP Laserjet1020 does appear on FC5 & FC6, and earlier FC's I expect.
If not .... look for
or look here
There are several ways to confure printers under FCx and frankly I don't know which one is preferred. Make sure "cups" is installed and running:
yum install cups
chkconfig --level 345 cups on
services cups start
You can use the Fedora utility (System->Administration->Printer )and then add the new printer ,but I believe the CUPS configurator works better (strictly an opinion). To use the cups configurator point your browser at:
(make a link while you are at it)
and click "add printer", answer the questions. Either select the HP Laserjet1020 or if the printer is attached & powered up it may auto-select the correct printer config.
