Dell A960 printer w/Mandrake 9.1

I'm looking at getting a printer/scanner for my Mandrake 9.1 machine, and am right now strongly considering a Dell A960 printer (I already have an account with them) but can not find anywhere anyone who has used, successfully or otherwise, this printer with Mandrake 9.2.

Has anyone here used an A960 with Mandrake 9.1, and if so, how well did it work?

I have a similar printer, a dell A920. My dell is a rebranded Lexmark X110 (something like that) From what research i have done, there are no linux drivers for these lexmark/dell printers, yet.

Anyone have a work around for this yet? It auto-detects it, but does not print the test page. Any ideas?
