Lexmark Z54 wont work on RedHat Linux

my Lexmark Z54 wont print on Red Hat Linux. I looked to get a driver but all they had was for Macintosh and Windows. I then restarted my computer making sure everything was plugged in. I got to a screen where it was configuring my printer. I went to System Settings and then Printers. It said i didnt have any printers. Can you help me?

you'll need a linux driver for sure to use printers in linux. I think there are some built into the kernel, but then your printer would have been detected. First check the lexmark site--i got a driver from them for the Z23

I now run MDK and the same printers were autodetected and work great. I duno
