Brother MFC under 64bit SuSE

A big reason for my friend to buy this printer was its excellent Linux compability. Back then when she bought it, she was running 32bit Suse 10.1. I installed the Brother MFC 5440-CN, first locally, later I connected it to the router, no problem till there.
Here is what I did:
rpm -ivh --nodeps MFC5440CNlpr-1.0.2-1.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh --nodeps cupswrapperMFC5440CN-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm
Then I fed Yast the created ppd Document and set it up in Yast -worked well.
Obviously this was a 32bit package, and I have not found a 64bit one, so I used the ppd I still had, to set the MFC up via localhost:631 and Yast. Both failed.
I gave it the following URI, as described by brother:
localhost:631 puts out, that the data has been sent (finally, at least), the printer, however, does not move.
What could I try?
Thanks for your time,
