HAL keeps asking me to configure my printer

How do I tell HAL to keep its grubby paws off of my printer? I have
an Epson Stylus CX4600 multifunction printer that is handled through
CUPS by a driver provided by Epson. Much of the time when I turn
on the printer, HAL (at least I believe it is HAL) pops up a dialog
SPECIFY PRINTER DRIVER
You have just plugged in a 'Seiko Epson Corp. USB MFP'
printer. The proper driver was not detected.
Please select a driver.
Contrary to the message, the printer is indeed configured. The
configuration is handled through CUPS at http://127.0.0.1:631/
or through the Epson software. It is not known to
system-config-printer. When I turn on the printer I have to
click on "Cancel" in the above dialog. This is getting tiresome.
