Xerox WorkCentre XK50cx printer, Mandrake 9.2 no driver?!?!

Hey guys. I'm looking to get my Xerox WorkCentre XK50cx printer/fax/scanner/copier working on Mandrake 9.2. There doesn't seem to be any drivers! I checked another post on here and someone else had the same problem, no resolution!!! Is there anything I can do about it? I can't code the driver myself for damn sure...if I could I'd contribute it to the community...but hey, I'm just a dumb american college computer science student with no coding ability...yet...

I found a good substitute driver for use with the Xerox XK50cx model printer. Just use the Lexmark Z52 driver instead, as this should work properly. I am running it with CUPS and everything is working just fine! Maybe not all the features are present, but the vast majority of them are. Good luck to future readers of this thread :-)
