Problems detecting printer port in Redhat 6.1,after installing Lexmark 5700 driver!


I have a Lexmark 5700 printer,which can be installed with a custom ghostscript,well I think I´ve
mangaged to install the printer,cause I can see it
when I run printtool-add printer,but before I get into printtool it says "auto detection found the following :
/dev/lp0        not detected
/dev/lp1       not  detected
/dev/lp2        not detected

I had this working when Redhat 6 was installed,so
I know it should work,but I don´t know how to set it up correct,please help me.
