Printtool does not create a /etc/printcap file

Description of problem:
After installing RH7.1 I tried to use the print tool to create a print (and also I assume a /etc/printcap) it does not create any such file.
I would then assume that I restart (or start) the lpd deamon, but of course since there is not a print cap the lpd will not start.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Install a printer
3.Notice there is nothing in the /etc/printcap
Actual Results: No printers useable under linux
Expected Results: Printers to work (as it did in RH7.0 / RH6.2)
Although the kernel correctly reports an attached local printer
no entry is made in the /etc/printcap file so the printer cannot
be used. The printer configuration tool available in RH6.2 under the
`control-panel' has been removed, and adding the printcap entry
from RH6.2 does not work even though ldp is running.
Are you using 'printconf-gui' to add this printer? Are you clicking the 'apply'
button after you add the printer?
Closing; no feedback.
