what I've noticed is that Mandy doesn't install cups by default so the first thing you should do is:
$> urpmi cups
$>urpmi hpijs

then take a browser and goto /questions/localhost:631. There you'll have a complete wizard to configure your printer (the one from cups not MDK).

Are you familiar with mandrake? Mandrake is an RPM-based distro which means that it installs its software by packages called rpm. These rpms are already compiled and install the binary code in the right place. Well what you did was install from source, and that is something can avoid most of the time (since it often goes wrong...). You can just use the command 'urpmi packagename' to install your software. It gets the right rpm and installs it for you, it also get all the needed dependencies (which can be quite a hell if you have to do it manually ). Default urpmi is set up to get the packages from your installation cdroms, but you can configure it that it dl the packages as well... http://urpmi.org/easyurpmi/index.php

succes,

what do you run at school? The only kind of distro I haven't tried yet is a pure source distro like Gentoo, 'cause it would crumble my laptop with the long compile at the install...
