Description of problem:
redhat-config-printer starts up fine, and will add printers to its list, and it
will even restart lpd sucessfully. Then when I go to print either an ASCII or a
postscript test page, it instantly says "Failed printing test page." I wondered
about this, and decided to take a look in /etc/printcap, and sure enough, only
the commented data was there. No actual printer information.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run redhat-config-printer.
2. Add a printer.
3. Print test page.

Actual Results:  1. No test page is printed.
2. No information is written into the /etc/printcap file.

Expected Results:  1. Print test page.
2. Data written into /etc/printcap file.

Additional info:

I have sucessfully printed a test page using CUPS. I'm also rather new to Redhat
and its configuration system, so this may not actually be related to
redhat-config-printer. Perhaps its a bug in the lpd?
