printtool in Fedora Core 1?


I've attempted to install a Lexmark x1150 using some instructions off this site (hardware, undeadpenguins thread) using the driver for the z600. I cannot get the driver to show up in the printer configuration "wizard type things" in either the GUI or the command line. Everyone keeps telling me to use printtool, which I cannot find in any directory in Fedora (Core 1). Is this another one of those things that was left out like the xconfigurator, and if so, can anyone tell me where to get ahold of it and how to possibly get it to work under Fedora?
