ghosview asks for "printer name?"

When printing
Ghostview asks me for the "Printer Name?"
and I don't know what to tell it.

cat document.ps | lpr

works fine on the command line
but I'd like to be able to print the
document directly from ghostview.

My printer is an HPLJ4L - tried that too.

-Thanks.

-Tony
