Power printer problems!

Yes, another one. I can't seem to configure my printer via the KDE or GNOME desktop driver
and printer configuration editor. I have the drivers, but i dunno what 'device' i should put my printer on.
(I'm a Linux nuB, the closest thing i can think of is lpt1 Smilie )
thanks!
