	CUPS Doesn't Recognize My Username or Password!

	CUPS will ask you for a UNIX username and password when you 
      perform printer administration tasks remotely or via a web browser. 
      The default configuration requires that you use the root username 
      and the corresponding password to authenticate the request.

	CUPS does not allow you to authenticate an administration request 
      with an account that has no password for security reasons. If you 
      do not have a password on your root account then you won't be able 
      to add printers remotely or via the web interface!

Hope this helps
