      run:
      ipkg update
      ipkg install cups

      The link is right and it is working ok for me.
      Try to download the package manually with wget to veryfy that you can
      download the package.:
      wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/slugos5be/cross/unstable/cups_1.4.6-1_armeb.ipk
      Make sure that DNS is properly setup on your SLUG and you can ping
      ipkg.nslu2-linux.org

        I'm having prob;ems with mem sticks at the moment, just trying for the forth time to get turnup
        memstick to write to the memstick properly.
        Trying a new stick preformatted ext3 with a swap partition at the moment.

          Hi
          for some reason it did not like the mem stick I was using.
          stick replaced and all loaded.
          How is cupsd started on slugosbe 5.3 , Is it from init.d ,?
          /opt/etc/init.d or /etc/init.d
          service start cupsd didn't function .so must be an earlier function

                    I saw on the earlier page that Debian 5 was to big so it was no longer supported.
                    I'll give Debian 6 a try.
                    And hope the print modules are either in the kernel or easily added
