I upgraded to 2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp on Fedora Core 3 and now my printer doesn't
work.

[root@saturn]# cat /home/steveo/mozilla.ps > /dev/lp0
bash: /dev/lp0: No such device or address

[root@saturn]# ls -l /dev/lp0
crw-rw---- 1 root lp 6, 0 Mar 20 14:45 /dev/lp0

/proc/devices shows
Character devices:
6 lp

Also, lsmod shows
parport_pc 29701 0
lp 15405 0
parport 37129 3 ppdev,parport_pc,lp
ppdev 12613 0

Anyone see something missing?
Does anyone know what I need to do to make it work?

Do I need to load a driver or add something to modprobe.conf?

TIA
