Description of problem:
I was trying to set up an Hp5500 and useed hp-setup to do this and went through the installer.  When I got done this is what I got as an error message:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Go to the terminal.
2.  At the terminal go to your root acount.
3.  Once at root type "hp-setup".
4.  Follow the steps as expected.
5.  At the end you will see the error message I got.  However, I am unsure if this is every Hp printer or just certain ones.1.

Actual Results:
An error message came up see above in description.

Expected Results:
The queue should have been made properly.  The upstream developers I assume are aware of this but have provided no fix that I am aware of except for a couple of patches.

Additional info:
The computer which has the printer attached is a Dell Dimension 4600.
