I just tested on a laptop installed from a 3/22/05 daily iso, not 
Warty-> Hoary upgrade, root account is disabled by default.  Admin mode 
works as expected;  logged in with user passwd, added a network 
printer, printed a test page.

What doesn't work is restarting CUPS from admin mode -- it stops the 
server, but does not restart it.  Error is:

CUPS Restart Server:
Unable to retrieve the print list.
Error message received from manager:
Connection to CUPS server failed.  Check that
the CUPS server is correctly installed and
running.  Error:
Connection refused

So, I revert to restarting CUPS from the CL, which is what I'm used 
to... but is the goal to have everything GUIfied?  I'll file a bug 
report if someone can confirm.
