Question Canon Drivers

i believe they are a .dd file or something...

anyways... let me cut to the chase.

mdk 8.1 xfree86 4.2.0
canon bjc-4100 on WindowsXP machine over network
samba setup on my machine. works fine.
using kups to setup my printer via smb works fine

the printer prints rubbish... pages of it... wasting my ink.
i suspect not the right drivers bc i selected RAW drivers because it did not have canon drivers anywhere.

the drivers have to do with CUPS
tried upgrading CUPS
cant because i require blah, and then blah requires PNG,
cant upgrade PNG because a bunch of things links to it or something, MDK wont let me upgrade.


PLEASE......... help out.......

im almost there........

any suggestions is appreciated. thx.
