how to setup a printer in gnome centos 5.3

I can't find a menu option, nor a command line command which helps me to set up a printer. Where's the icon or what command do I use ?

that gives me a message
could not open location 'fiile:///system-config-printer'
I did a locate for system-config-printer, but all I saw was folders under /usr/share, /usr/share/doc and /usr/share/doc

Technically speaking you've answered my question, but it still doesn't print using ipp.

Do you want me to answer this as completed (so you can get the points) and start a new question or continue here ?

I installed a driver from openprinting.org, which seems to be writing to the printer. I think I just need to find the right driver now.
