Question Printer Install Help

I'm trying to install hplip-0.9.6 to drive a HP Deskjet 3940. Under the Installation overview at Step 2: Download and install the HP printing software at step 9: "# make install" at the end of the make install I get the following errors:

make[3]: *** [install-data-hook] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/Ben/hplip-0.9.6'
make[2]: *** [install-data-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/Ben/hplip-0.9.6'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/Ben/hplip-0.9.6'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

What can I do to correct these errors?

If I then try step 10: "#/etc/init.d/hplip restart"

I get:

[root@xxx hplip-0.9.6]# /etc/init.d/hplip restart
bash: /etc/init.d/hplip: No such file or directory

What do I do here?

Thanks,
Newbie,

You can get hplip from updates-testing; like "yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install hplip". But you don't need HPLIP for basic printing; for basic printing, you just need HPIJS; which you probably already have (if not, do "yum install hpijs").

Thanks, that helped and I now have the printer installed and running. HOWEVER, there is one problem. It won't print from mozilla, firefox, or opera. It will print text files and from Thunderbird. Can anyone help?
