thank you again allend. I really do appreciate your time and trouble to assist me.
after reading thru the links. this may be beyond my abilities at this point. I don't have a good understanding of these process's that are involved.
this will have to go unsolved for the time being.

I have looked at this a bit more and it seems to be quite straightforward.
1. Download the driver package to a directory, say ~/Desktop/canon
2. Open a terminal window and 'cd ~/Desktop/canon'
3. Extract the tarball with 'tar xf 22415.tgz'. (It contains two further tar archives; one containing the driver files, the other is a user guide)
4. Extract the driver tarball with 'tar xf iP1500Linux.tar.gz'
5. 'cd iP1500'
6. Become root with'su'
7. Convert the two required .rpm packages with
'rpm2txz -S -n -d -c bjfilter-common-2.50-2.i386.rpm'
'rpm2txz -S -n -d -c bjfilter-pixmaip1500-2.50-2.i386.rpm'
8. Install the two resulting Slackware packages with 'upgradepkg --install-new *.txz'
9. Return to normal user with 'exit'
Optional-
10. 'cd ..'
11. Extract the user guide with 'tar xf guidepixmaip1500-2.50-1.tar.gz'
You can access the user guide by opening ~/Desktop/canon/iP1500/guide_index.htm with a browser

You should now be able to use the modify printer functionality in the CUPS interface to configure your printer. As I do not have the hardware, I cannot test this.

The driver seems to be 32bit only. In Slackware 14.0, 'uname -m' will return either "i686" (32bit) or "x86_64" (64bit).

having trouble with the download, its still running after about an hour. downloaded into /home when i do ls -all i see 22415.tgz.part, 4083904 in size, i extracted and got the guide tarball, guidepixmaip1500-2.50-1.tar.gz, 4083712 in size, and extracted that. iP1500Linux.tar.gz' is not present. switched to root, did ls -all and have file 22415.tgz, same size as.part file, used tar xf and got, gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file tar: unexpected EOF in archive x2 error not recoverable exiting now.
have no idea why i'm not getting the driver file.i've tried download twice.download still running...

You will need to complete the download ( the .part indicates the download is not complete). I see
Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 me users 12997456 Apr 15 10:53 22415.tgz
-rw-r--r-- 1 me users  4133579 Apr 16  2009 guidepixmaip1500-2.50-1.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 me users  8862609 Apr 16  2009 iP1500Linux.tar.gz
As you can see, the initial tarball is ~12MB in size. It will depend on your download speed, but I would not expect an hour to download.

i went to localhost with my webbrowser, add printer, used the window samba deal, gave username and passwrd etc as you layed them out...selected my printer from list and continued, this time my printer was in the list with the 2.50 driver. asked printer for defaults then tried to print test page.

i got 2 messages: #1 ID ip1500-20 name unknown, user witheld, size 1k, pages unknown, state pending since mon 15 apr 2013 08:49:21 pm cdt "Can't load /etc/samba/smb.conf-run testparm to debug it"

#2 was for test page ID ip1500, name unknown, user withheld, size 1k, pages unknown, state pending since mon 15 apr 2013 08:49:44 pm cdt

will open the etc file in vi and have a look...

You should have a file /etc/samba/smb.conf-sample. As root, do 'cp /etc/samba/smb.conf-sample /etc/samba/smb.conf'. Then edit that file to set the workgroup to the name of the workgroup on your Windows install.
Code:
   workgroup = MYGROUP
Use smbpasswd to add your Linux user account to the Samba password backend.
Code:
smbpasswd -a -U<username>%<password>
Start Samba with
Code:
sh /etc/rc.d/rc.samba start
To have Samba start automatically at boot, make /etc/rc.d/rc.samba executable with
Code:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba
You can do a lot more with Samba. The Samba documentation is very comprehensive.
