You were right, it was a permission problem (I didn't realized that 
neither of my users but root could print to
that printer).  It took me a while to figure out the problem but I 
traced it to the jetadmin of HP.  The printer
were create with the old jetadmin tool and aparently it doesn't work on 
Solaris (I couldn't figured out why
it works only for root).  
   I removed the printer and recreated it using the new webadmin 
provided by HP and it worked.

Thanks for your help.


PS.  Daulton, hope it helps you too.
