I had the same problem with Mandrake 10, it recognized my MFC 5200c but won't print and Brother doesn't have a driver for it. Trying to figure out what to do.

Did you try installing by CUPS web interface?
try by a web browser
and open "add printer"
follow instuctions
If my memory helps me, I saw some lexmark printers options there....(may be I'm wrong).
Anyway it does not hurt anything
Hope this helps
