See the instructions here:  http://am-productions.biz/docs/hplip.php

One of the items is mentions is that hplip requires that ulpt be disabled so
that the printer appears as a 'ugen' device.  I think this requires
recompiling the kernel.

Also, remember that lpd has lp* files (in /usr/bin/ ?) that may conflict
with CUPS files of the same name in /usr/local/bin/.  Did you rename/move
the lpd versions?

I struggled with cups and hplip for weeks.  PCBSD seems to have these things
working well; but for my FreeBSD server, I've switched from an HP printer to
a used postscript Okidata.

Best of luck,
