Fedora Core 5 - (Re)Enabling a CUPS print queue

HI,

I have a print queue running on Fedora Core 5 that has become disabled (Printer powered off in mid print run)
I understand that re-enabling a queue on linux should be as easy as :
enable printername OR lpc enable all OR lpc up all OR  /usr/bin/enable printername
However all of these commands say they are not implemented in the CUPS version of lpc

I have purged the jobs from the queue and now just need to enable printing again,
Any help would be greatly appreciated, we need to print an invoice run today.

lp:
        queuing is enabled
        printing is disabled
        no entries
        daemon present

Ok. I've sorted this myself. took me ages to find it so i thought id post the solution for anyone else that is searching for this.

On Fedora Core 5 usings CUPS you have to use the lpadmin command
lpadmin -p printername -E

the -E switch (re)enables printing
