System is working well and as soon as I plug the USB cable for Canon printer
S200SP (This printer doesn't have parallel port connection), system hangs,

Please find the line "alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd" in
/etc/modules.conf and comment it out (with #), let us know if it helps.

Thankyou Pete. Your soultion has solved the system hang problem. Then I tried to
use the printer but couldn't do that. Things which I tried :
Usimg KDE's "ControlPanel > Printer Configuration" utility I created following
configurations and tried to print, but couldn't do that.

Config 1: 
Queue Name: canons200sp (Local Printer) 
Device : /dev/lp0
Printer Driver: Canon > BJC-210SP > bj200 (Closest to color S200SP)

When tried printing a test page from the utility and from shell 'lpq' command is
 executed, output was :

Printer: canons200sp@localhost
 Queue: 1 printable job
 Server: pid 2571 active
 Unspooler: pid 2572 active
 Status: IF filter 'mf_wrapper' filter msg - 'closed *main::KID3' at 23:12:44.168

Config 2: (Same as Config 1 except driver)
Printer Driver: Canon > BJ-200 > bj200 
Similar message on 'lpq' command

Config 3: (Same as Config 1 except driver)
Printer Driver: Canon > BJ-200 > omni 
output of 'lpq'
Printer: canons200sp@localhost

Config 4: (Using USB)
Queue Name: canons200spusb (Local Printer) 
Device : /dev/usb/lp0
Printer Driver: Canon > BJC-210SP > bj200 

Config 5: (Same as Config 4 except driver)
Printer Driver: Canon > BJC-210SP > omni 

Config 6: (Same as Config 4 except driver)
Printer Driver: Canon > BJC-210SP > bjc600

Config 7: (Same as Config 4 except driver)
Printer Driver: Canon > BJC-210SP > gimp-print

On the shell when 'lpq' command is run output is:
Status: cannot open /dev/usb/lp0 - No such device , attempt 3  sleeping 40 at
23:09:50.301

Could you please help me how to get this working.
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2003-01-23 22:59:10 EST
Please attach a copy of /proc/bus/usb/devices, with the printer connected.
Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2003-06-03 15:00:42 EDT
And BTW, lsmod output would be good, too (perhaps "printer" module fails to load).
Comment 5 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:20 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
