Linksys Print Server Issues with Mac

I just bought a Epson Stylus Photo R200 printer and wanted to network it so that all computers in the apartment could access it.  I bought a Linksys 4-port USB Print Server to do the job, and had no issues with the Windows-based laptop I connected to it.  In trying to get my iBook connected (with OS X 10.3.3) I had some issues.  All of the print drivers installed easily, but, when I tried to establish an IP print port, problems came up.  I set the type to be LPD/LPR and entered the IP address for the print server.  I initially left the Queue Name blank and attempted to print, but received an error.  After reading around on Google Groups, I found someone who had a similar issue with the same print server.  They suggested using "ls" in the Queue Name field.  I tried doing this and the printer responded, but printed out what looked like machine language.  Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get this to work?

Have you tried IPP protocol rather than LPD/LPR protocol.  The Linksys Print Server
support IPP printing and it is the native printing protocol for OS X 10.3.

Actually, installing Gimp-print fixed the problem, thanks for your help.
