CUPS and Brother MFC-5440CN

I've seen a topic near down but nothing's in it.

I couldn't find drivers for slackware 10.2(2.4.31) so I downloaded rpm package and convertet it with rpm2tgz. I installed the driver and still didn't get any result. This is how I did it in cups:

1.) Name: brother
2.) Device: Device: USB Printer #1(Brother MFC-5440CN)
3.) Make: Raw
4.) Model: Raw Queue(en)

After this I tried to print a test page. Nothing happens only there's a record in the "completed jobs" section

Any ideas?
