How does cups determine the root privilegdes?
last time i used cups 1.1.x it asked in a browser dialog for a user/password 
combination.....shouldnt there be a popup window in cvs too?

Ive changed nothing in the configs, and just tarring them up is about 200kb, 
the mailing list allows only 50kb :(
