I am trying to setup cups to work with my xp laptop. My only problem right now is that I can't start the process. Instead i get an error message saying this:

[Jake@74 ~]$ /etc/init.d/cups restart Stopping cups: [FAILED]
Starting cups: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/printconf-backend", line 7, in ?
