Try the above link, I don't use Linux/RedHat so this is out of my area but the first couple of links on the page might give you either information and / or drivers to work with.

I see that the Hardware-HOWTO lists that printer as "Works mostly", rather than 'Paperweight", so all is probably not lost. :D

Have a look at www.linuxprinting.org ... it might be a "new improved user-fiendly" printing system which is causing a problem. You couldbe missing a configuration file which you might find in the google provided links. (the first two both list it).
