Tutorial for CUPS?

Does anyone have a real simple "cook-book" for getting CUPS up and running?

I've installed cups-1.5 from pkgsrc (this is the version required by the misc/libreoffice4 package), and I've also installed the foomatic-* packages. I've started cupsd(8) (manually, since there does not seem to be a rc.d/cupsd file provided in the package).

I've got only one printer, an HP 6940 on my local ethernet, and it has been running (in B&W mode only!) using print/magicfilter with a simple entry in my /etc/printcap file:

        # HP DeskJet 6940 on network


What, if anything, do I need to do to make this work under CUPS?

Thanks in advance!
