this is
rm /var/lib/YaST2/printers

and allow you to get going again."
What is this and where do I make the change?

Start terminal window.
su <enter>
enter your root password
mv /var/lib/YaST2/ppd_db.ycp .
(do not forget the dot). This will move the file to your home directory.

Then start yast as usual.
