Does the printer have internal setup controls? ie: setting print  
times, network settings.....
Check to see that the printer is set up to print immediately.
How is the printer connected? usb, network, usb to parallel cable?
Are you sure you're using the print driver setting instead of the fax  
setting in Print Setup?

"Sure, the invasion of Iraq was supposed to -- and will -- make us  
safer. But few said it would make us safer right away, and those who  
suggested otherwise were foolish for doing so. But why anybody should  
be shocked or outraged that terrorists are striking back even as they  
lose the war is beyond me. The only shock and outrage should be over  
their willingness to murder innocent civilians indiscriminately. And,  
perhaps, a little shock and outrage is called for in response to  
those who think such terrorism is justified at all."
