Are you using the default 2.4.x kernel?

first make sure that the usb printer modules are loaded.
Go to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncomment the modules u need.

probably one of those:
### USB Host Controllers:
# Universal Host Controller Interface (Intel standard):
#/sbin/modprobe usb-uhci
# Universal Host Controller Interface (alternate JE):
/sbin/modprobe uhci
# Open Host Controller Interface (Compaq/Microsoft/National standard):
#/sbin/modprobe usb-ohci
and this one:
# USB printer support:
#/sbin/modprobe printer
If you are using hot plug they may be loaded automatically and you may not need to edit rc.modules. do
to find it out.

if not rerun rc.modules:

then make sure cups is usable:

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
and start cups:
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start

then open a web-browser and go to the address
From there you may add a printer.

try the Canon BJC 7100 Driver driver.

Also remove lprng:
removepkg lprng
