I'm not sure about RH5.0, as I only have 4.1, but try this:

In the control-panel utility select the printers icon. Add a new printer, an Epson ESC/P2 or whatever is nearest. Now save this configuration and drop back to a shell.

Try printing something with lpr. If it doesn't work, try altering the settings in the control panel again.

The Epson Stylus range will understand ESP/P2 control codes, so you should be able to get it going this way.

Try to compile ghostscript.
I have an Epson 600 Stylus Color and I have downloaded the source code of Ghostscript 5.0x, then i have read the Readme and i have compiled it with Epson Stylus Color option setted. In fact the .rpm distributed with RedHat hasn't this option setted on.
