Missing vnd.cups-postscript on fedora 5

Hi guys,
I am using fedora 5 with cups and samba as print server for my samsung printer. The printer is not a postscript so it must use it own ppd file that rely on a general font filter to work. This is what i found in the ppd file:

*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 ppmtospl2"

However, i cant find the vnd.cups-postscript on my linux box. Does anyone know which package i should install to get that filter? Or anuwhere i can download that specific filter?
Hope to get some reply
