[SLE] Warning to Americans!

The default installation of SuSE printers uses A4 paper, which will cause your
printer to hang up. It happened to me and it took a while to figure out what
was going on. CUPS also has to be told (separately, I think) what the paper
size is. For Americans, it should be letter size. The setting is in the
filter parameters of the printer.

Since I ask lots of questions, perhaps I can do a good turn for others here.
