How to make 'cups' a daemon process?

I am having a problem with making 'cups' a startup service.

I attatched an HP1160 to my Ubuntu box and shared it with other PCs in the same subnet. It worked fine. But later on, I find that I have to start manually the '/etc/init.d/cups' service script every time I reboot the system.

My first reaction was to add 'cups' to '/etc/init.d/' but it was already there! And there are symbolic links named 'S50cups' under /etc/rc[2-5].d.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
