Are you compiling Wine? If you do, then you need to make sure that the 
cups-devel package is installed. If you install it, then to recompile 
Wine, first do a "make distclean", and recompile Wine from scratch.

I was more interested in the contents of the entire section; that is the 
lines following the header, but before the next header (headers being 
the part between the brackets[]).

But the first thing to do is to save a copy of the file, and then delete 
the header and it's contents. When Wine is run and you try to print, it 
should then recreate the correct registry entries from scratch.
