Question Epson Stylus Color 777 printer won't print on Fedora Core 1


I'm a n00b and I've just started using Linux, Fedora Core 1 to be specific, for a few days.
I have encountered a few problems with my onboard sound card and dvd drive and harddrive and what not, however, with the information on various online forum and some luck, I managed to make them work. Yet there is still one issue which I can't seem to find much solutions around: my printer isn't working at all.

IIt's an Epson Styluus Color 777. I have used the "Printing" tool that comes with Fedora, set it up as Locally-connected "/dev/lp0", with the Stylus Color 777 driver "gimp-print-ijs", however, when i tried to get it to print a test page, nothing happened at all. Also, nothing happened when I try to print from a program like OpenOffice.

It will be muchly appreciated If u will generously share ur expertise with me.
