Thank you all.  My problem, as you all know, was the URI.  I changed to using 
parallel:/dev/lpt0 and everything is working great.  This is too cool!

Because there wasn't a URI of that type listed on the administration web page, 
I didn't think to use something other than what was there.

At any rate, I'm printing from KPDF and it's really cool!  Thanks again.
