Angry Printer Printing Problem

I previously installed Linux Mandrake(Blue Bird) 8.2. All seem to
worked out well in the installation and configuration of the
softwares and hardwares the system is using. The only difference I
noticed with it compared with Linux Mandrake 7.1 (Helium) is that
it couldn't properly detect my printer which is a CANON BJC 4200SP
but unlike on the HELIUM it worked fine with the setting of CANON
BJC 4000 Series. I tried to manually install the printer which was
successful in detection. The problem is it doesn't print right. I had
to use CUPS as the printing system. All it keeps on printing are a set
of garbled characters. Can anyone help me out? Or might give me some
suggestions? It will be greatly appreciated.
