Question usb ports

Is there any way to configure the usb ports for use with

windows printer drivers? Is there a generic printer driver

for linux?

Thanks for the feed back.

Windows printer drivers will not work on Linux. The default print system depends on the distribution, for RedHat 9 it is CUPS. I don't know if Mandrake 9 is derived from RedHat 9.
