I don't know that I can add anything to the cups discussion here, but I 
understand you'd rather use lpr anyway. You are aware that the printer 
will only speak splix the samsung universal driver language? So any 
config would have to be based on that.

Once you have that working maybe you can manually add the printer in 
cups using lpd.

JIC you haven't considered this yet... HIH :)
