lpr won't work

Lpr keeps giving the error "jobs queued, but cannot start demon".
Top shows that lpd is running, and the kernel was compiled with

1. lpr won't work, "no such device"?

crw-rw----   1 root     lp         6,   0 Nov 30 13:30 /dev/lp0
crw-rw----   1 root     lp         6,   1 Nov 30 13:30 /dev/lp1
