installation samsung printer ml-2160

I try to install Samsung Laser printer ML-2160 on to linux with CD-Rom of Samsung which came with purchase. It does not work - though I receive on desktop notes such as "now printing" and "printing completed". The storage paper on the printer never moves. The connections are OK and the printer can easily be installed on Windows XP.
What do I do wrong?

Did you install the ones for linux...

There are three linux driver files for this Samsung model that may be found if you look at the Samsung support site. The driver itself seems to install with the "" command, but I think you'll have to use the Internet to help you with the details.

What linux distribution are you using?
