Not sure if this will help:

In Red Hat and others there is a really easy graphical tool to add printers. Just select your printer model from the list and that's about it. If you use KDE I think it also has some sort of graphical add printer utility. But the link above was off of Slackware's web site so I assume that will work for you.
