See http://www.cups.org/articles.php?L274 for instructions on the web 
interface, and  http://www.cups.org/documentation.php for the Cups 
documentation. The 'there' directory should be /usr/share/doc/packages/cups/ 
or /usr/share/cups/doc-root/
for the first directory. The second one is what I have on my Kubuntu 8.04
