Unhappy help with printer driver instalation


Please help me!

Below is my problem:
I want to install Canon LBP2900 on a fedora core machine through command prompt (a terminal window).

I downloaded the driver and read the instructions.

There are 2 rpm-s to be installed with rpm -ivh:

I have an older version of CUPS.(1.1.22) and the CAPT rpm didn't start with it.

So I tried to install the new common file.

When trying to install the new one I got an error...failed dependencies:
The CAPT rpm contained more failed dependencies...
cndrvcups-common >= 1.30 (I know how to correct this )

The Canon documentation stated that I should have installed Ghostscript before trying to install this driver.
Do the above failed dependencies refer to ghostscript?
If so where can I find it 'for fedora core OS'?
If what I need is only the gtk+ package...where can I get a copy for fedora?

PS: Is there a command to tell me the fedora core version? Like ver from msdos? The linux system is a server and I don't want to restart it for now.

You can get your kernel version with uname -r (-a for complete kernel info)
