    Check www.linuxprinting.org to see if your printer is in the list.

    Here I can print on Brother HL-5040, HP LaserJet5, and generally on all of our HP printers in the company. (All My boxes are on Linux)

    I checked out for you, should work like a charm.
    So:
    - Check your cable connection
    - Check in yout setup if the paralell port is active and enabled !!

    You also have to kinda install the printer and configure cups.

    See the above link for some tuts.
