Setting up printer in Fedora

My printer was detected automatically when I installed Fedora core 2. It is a BCJ-2100 and is attached through the usb port.

The problem was that it was not printing correctly. I was getting huge letters and they were off to the side of the page etc. So I went into the (htp://localhost:631/admin) and deleted the printer and tried adding my own following the steps. The printer gets installed correctly (as far as I know) but now does not print at all!

any ideas?

Did it detect the printer as BJC 2100? I had this problem once when my printer was detected as an incorrect one and the printing was weird.
