Angry printing over network to a winXP box w/ HP photosmart 7150

hello again everyone,

ok, i've got another question for the people out there. my current setup, i have an HP OfficeJet 710 connected to my linux box, which prints perfectly locally, and over the network, and an HP photosmart 7150 on my windows box, i can get cups to connect and send data to the printer, but it is all screwed up. instead of printing normally, it will print the test page as if they were photos. meaning that there are 4 copies of the test page on one sheet. i was using the cups hpdeskjet550c driver because i couldn't find the photosmart one, i've also tried various inkjet drivers, but nothing seems to work, could someone maybe help me out?
