Should I black list usblp module or not? [CUPS]

Hey guys, For an hour and a half now I have been trying to install and configure CUPS so I can do some simple printing on my computer... I have an Epson WorkForce 630 and is currently trying to install the appropriate kernel modules, And will like to know should I blacklist usblp in the /etc/rc.conf or not? I am trying to install my printer via USB, and it says in the article (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CUPS#Installing) that I may be required to blacklist usblp but there is alot of "uncertainty" in it, what in gods name does that mean? So should i do it or not?

P.S
When I do black list usblp in /etc/rc.conf and run

tail /var/log/messages.log

i get this...

 [root@main ~]# tail /var/log/messages.log

With usblp enabled, can you add your printer in cups? If your printer is not in the list, you have to blacklist the module.

Because MODULE-related edits to rc.conf need a reboot.

And siriusb is right, the CUPS stuff at https://localhost:631 is more informative.
But I guess you'd need this first: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=42294

rmmod usblp will unload the module, then /etc/rc.d/cups restart will restart cups.

Some epson printers need usblp and it is available from AUR  I use a R300 printer that certainly does. but usblp  is not installed by default so does not need blacklisting unless you install it.
gnome print manager also makes installing printers very easy if your printer does not show when you click add printer then you need to install usblp I asume you are in the group lp if not you will never get your printer working.

Just try with the module loaded and not loaded, then use what works for you.
