Description emkay 1999-06-12 12:30:12 EDT
My computer has two printers connected to it.
1:a HP LaserJet 5L on lp1 connected to the port on the
mother board.

2:A HP Office Pro connected to a PCI card in the system.
  I did not try to configure this.

When I used printtool it detected only on printer identified
as lp0. I configured it but no printing. Error Message said
printer was not configured (the  queue was written  to

The solution I find to configured the printer was:
1-REboot and disconnect the HP Office Pro.
3-Use printtool. Here it detectged lp0 (not lp1) but I
  the configure worked fine and I am able to   print.
4 - I rebooted and reconnected the HP Office Pro(I use it
    in NT 4.0.
5 - REbooted Linux and Laser Jet still works fine.
It seems that with an extra printer connected to a PCI
card printtool is unable to configure the printer connected
to the Port on the mother board.
I did not try to configure the Office Jet Pro as HP says
there are no drivers for it.

Did you originally (with both attached) have it set as
lp0 or lp1 - unless you've explicitly loaded support for
the PCI parallel port card, the printer would *still* be
on lp0.
