You do not say what versions of the software programs you are using.
The subject line says FreeBSD-5.1 RELEASE, so I assume you are using the
ports/packages from the CD.  If that is the case, printing was broken
with cups and gimp-print at that time due to an incompatibility between
ghostscript and cups-pstoraster.  The answer is to cvsup a fresh ports
tree and install the latest versions of the ports.  If you already have
the latest versions installed then you have some other problem.
