First of all, the Leopard system disk may not have a driver for your model of printer. Check the vendors web site for the latest version of driver available and install it.
If you have already done this and it still doesn't help, then I would try resetting the printing system. With the Print & Fax pane open, move the mouse over the Printers list, hold down Control and click. A box should appear showing 'Reset printing system' which you can click.
Once you have done this, open Disk Utility and run Repair Disk Permissions. When this is complete, restart your Mac and try adding the printer again.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 1, 2009 3:25 AM (in response to PAHU)I too just hit this problem. The machine is my mothers eMac which I've just upgraded from 10.4 to 10.5 - and all the printers disappeared.
Did the reset printing system, repair permissions, no change.
What I did find, was that if I clicked on the IP tab instead of using the default browser, select HP printer as the type, and entered the DNS name (use IP address if DNS is fully setup) - then both the printers were setup. The LJ1320 setup automatically, the OJ9130 I had to select the right driver as it selected generic postscript.
Odd and annoying, the drivers are there (they've been in use for several years), but there's definitely a problem either with the default browser or Bonjour.
