How do I stop annoying pop-up messages about installing a Task-Printing-Server

Mandriva-2009.1 tries to install a package called Task-Printing-Server every time I power up my PSC-1401 All-In-One (multifunction) printer. This is very annoying & I want to stop these pop-up messages.

This printer uses the hplip package (PSC_1400.ppd for printing & hpaio for scanning) & everything works fine except for those annoying pop-up messages.

If anyone can explain how to stop these messages, please let me know. Thank you.

I was able to stop Mandriva-2009.1 from displaying the annoying pop-up widows by removing the executable premission from
/usr/lib/notification-daemon. Now my HP PSC-1401 All-In-One Printer can be powered up after boot without those annoying
pop-up winows & I can still print & scan with it. I only hope this doesn't break somthing else.

This stops Mandriva from displaying the following pop-up windows:
1.) Task-Printing-server
2.) Installing Printer
3.) Installing Printer Failed

I was thinking of just removing the notification-daemon-0.4.0-3mdv2009.1.rpm package but it has too many dependancies &
the following package(s) also need to be removed:

- codeina-0.10.2-25.1mdv2009.1.noarch
- drakbackup-0.19.2-1mdv2009.1.noarch
- drakconf-12.10.1-2mdv2009.1.noarch
- drakfax-0.17.3-1mdv2009.1.noarch
- drakguard-0.7.3-1.1mdv2009.1.noarch
- drakmenustyle-0.14.1-1mdv2009.1.noarch
- drakx-net-0.75.4-1.1mdv2009.1.noarch
- drakxtools-12.35.3-1.1mdv2009.1.i586
- ekiga-3.2.0-1mdv2009.1.i586
- gnome-mount-0.8-5mdv2009.1.i586
- gvfs-1.2.2-1mdv2009.1.i586
- harddrake-ui-12.35.3-1.1mdv2009.1.i586
- libgvfs0-1.2.2-1mdv2009.1.i586
- libnotify1-0.4.5-1mdv2009.1.i586
- perl-Gtk2-Notify-0.05-1mdv2009.1.i586
- python-notify-0.1.1-4mdv2009.1.i586
- rpmdrake-5.16.6-1.2mdv2009.1.noarch
- s2u-0.9-2mdv2009.1.i586
- system-config-printer-1.0.16-4mdv2009.1.noarch
- userdrake-1.9.1-1mdv2009.1.i586

I tried adding "/^task-printing-server/" to /etc/urpmi/skip.list but that doesn't stop Mandriva from trying to install a Task-Printing-Server
& displaying the above pop-up widows

I also tried Kde Control Panel but nothing there seemed to be related.

I am still open to suggestions because there has got to be a better way.
