cups issue, unsupported format

I'm working on getting cups working and I've installed the "hplip" port and  
the cups program used that to install the printer. At least, there was  
an "HPLIP" in a list in one of the pages during the setup. My printer is an  
old HP LaserJet 4+ which I've connected through the parallel port. My URI  
for the printer is parallel:/dev/lp0. When I went to do the test page I got  
this error, "Unsupported format 'application/postscript'." Here's the  
problem, I chose a driver which, though I don't remember the full string in  
cups, was a 4/5 PCL driver. So, why is it trying to print using postscript?
