It does have a fixed ip address, but I would have to say network connectivity 
is sketchy.  I can always ping the printer, but sometimes my machine will be 
unable to see everything else on the network.  This happened before on a 
completely different machine with 1 network card running new box 
has three network cards with one completely devoted to the printer.  Somehow 
the network still fails for everything but the printer from time to time.

In any case, I think this is technically all better hashed out some other 
time.  The problem I'm having seems to have more to do with the way Kubuntu 
sets things up with respect to sudo (which is, on the whole, a very nice way 
to handle things) and cups (which I've always had problems with).

I can "print" (such that things make it onto the queue), but I'm unable to 
remove things from the queue using the kprinter interface in either user or 
admin mode.

I think if I can figure out the permissions issues I'll likely have a better 
time figuring out why things are being delayed between the queue and the
