With Google...

This printer seems to function under linux using the same driver as the bj200

http://www.openprinting.org/driver/bj200

Try to install the printer on your own and post back with any error reports that you receive.

Source code...

Distrowatch mentions that blackPanther OS uses parts of Ubuntu for driver management, so you might start with a Ubuntu forum for more help. An alternative is to compile the driver yourself.
