As I understand it, CUPS and /etc/printcap don't mix.  Typically CUPS is
configured with /etc/cups/cupsd.conf (for the daemon, Web interface, etc),
/etc/cups/printers.conf for the printer definitions, /etc/cups/classes.conf
for the class (pool) definitions, etc.

So is lpd running or cupsd?  You'll want the cupsd daemon running and then
you should be able to interface via a browser to http://<your.host>:631 -
similar to the way swat listens on port 901. Then you can define printers,
etc through the Web interface and watch what happens in /etc/cups.

Hope this helps.
