HP Printer will not print

I have a Linux with Xandros3 OS, And my printer is a HP F380, I was told by HP that it would work with my computer and i can't get it to print, I am getting the run around with everyone I talk to, I just need to be able to print my documents for my classes. I have been able to print Test pages and make copies, but I can not get it to print documents, it disappears almost immediately from the 'print jobs' window and will not print. I have been told I need some sort of "Debian Driver" but I've also been told I need to fix the "CUPS" to a higher level. Please someone help me, I've no clue where else to turn.

Awaiting hope,

Check out and search for your printer to see what it needs to work.

Fire up any browser and point it to http://localhost:631, then go to printers and check that out.
