Default newbie eagle problem

Hi I have designed a single layer, power supply board, using the latest free "eagle" software program. I now have a picture of a board with the tracks/ground plane/components BUT everytime I print a copy of the board the outlines (ghosts)of the components show and I just want the tracks and ground plane so I can use the printout for etching.How do i remove the component outlines so I can print the right diagram of just copper planes? thanks

Before printing, you open the "Display..." dialog (Menu->"View"->"Display/hide layers..." or the icon on the toolbar that looks like stacked blue, red, and green rectangles) and select the layers you want to see. After that, print as usual.
