how do i get my canon printer working

I have a acer aspire one netbook with linux linpus lite. (no cd drive) I am trying to get my printer working with my net book, it is a canon pixma mp270. i have looked all over the web and i am getting very confused what to do, i am new to linux and to be honest new to computers so i am looking for a very kind person to hopefully give me a step by step walk through on how to install it. i have tried installing it but on the printer configuration my model of canon is not registered in the list mp270 and when i try and use it with any other one it just sits at idle status. please help me (
