Look in the linux faq-omatic.

There are good instructions there on what you need to do.
One caveat: the instructions there mention using hstty but what worked for
me was using 'stty'. You'll see where stty and hstty show up in the filter
file and in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Also note: first use printtool to set up the printer. Then set up the
queue. Then set up the filter file (there are a couple lines you'll need to
add. If you go back into the printtool, you may also need to re-edit the
filter file.
