install a printer

I am new to Fedora 4 but I like what I see.
If someone can help me with some instructions on how to install a printer, as All I get is default printer and it will not work or the option to install a network printer which I do not want to do.
The printer is a HP950C and is connected to the computer with a parallel/USB cable.
How do I get Fedora to recognise it and make it print.
It is connected with the parallel/USB cable because it has two connections and the USB connection is plugged into the wifes XP computer which only left me with the parallel interface and as my Shuttle has no parallel connector I brought a HP parallel/USB cable.
A wise man hears all and says nothing

There is a printer config tool on the menus, System Settings > Printing.
