I have been trying to setup my Lexmark Z705 printer on my linux box and I just cant find a suitable driver anywhere.  We have a LAN and want to be able to print to the Linux box both from linux and from windows... Thanks for any help on the matter.

Is it too late to take it back?

The tools are there but no-one has written the driver yet AFAIK.  You may want to call Lexmark and ask if they have a drvier yet (it's not on their webpage).  This is sort of the definitive site for Linux printing and they recommend a variety of printers at different requirement levels.

There's also a sample driver (shudder) from Lexmark that may work.  Note that it requires LPR instead of CUPS.
