From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-8; Linux)

Description of problem:
When selecting a print driver, printconf-gui lists some HP printers under the manufacturer "HP" and others under "HP LaserJet". This seems confusing as I think some printers could use a driver from under either list.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "printconf-gui".
2. click the new button.
3. click the next button.
4. type in a queue name.
5. select local printer.
6. click next.
7. click next.
8. when prompted to select a print driver, scroll down and you will see both "HP" and "HP LaserJet". I don't think any other printer manufacturer is listed twice.

Actual Results:  Two seperate entries exist for HP printers.

Expected Results:  All HP printers/drivers should be merged under "HP".

Additional info:

This may be a bug in foomatic/Omni-foomatic and not printconf-gui, but I have not gone through the code to figure out how the entire system works. All testing was done on Skipjack beta2 (installed using ISOs) and then updated using up2date.
