cannot get HP1018 to work on Fedora 9 [Did not read INSTALL]

Could anybody please help with this problem: I have recently switched to Fedora 9 and followed the exact installation steps recommended for HP1018, but I could not get the printer to work. I had done exactly the same thing on Fedora 7 in the past and had no problems at all. I would be very grateful for any suggestions you might have, thanks, Paula

# usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0
What does that say?

I think I've followed the instructions but it still doesn't work.

> usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0

GET_DEVICE_ID string:
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet 1018;CMD:ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet 1018;

Thank you very much!

Firmware is not getting loaded.

Did you do:
$ make
$ ./getweb 1018         #IMPORTANT
$ su
# make install
# make install-hotplug  #IMPORTANT
# make cups

Then power off and on the printer.
