How to get CUPS to work (newbie)

I have CUPS installed on my 4.8 system. I cannot seem to configure it,
though. I have tried the web interface at localhost:631, but it seems
that the cupsd.conf file was not created. Well, then I tried to create
this using the print server configuration in KDE and I keep getting
permission denied errors when I try to write the cupsd.conf file
(running this as root, btw).
Basically I am looking for a tutorial somewhere to get CUPS up and
running on FreeBSD. Actually, I do have it running, I just can't
configure it or add any printers. Not much use without printers :)
I checked on freebsddiary.org, and the CUPS page there doesn't cover the
configuration of the server itself it seems.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
