How do I setup a USB printer on Fedora (Fedora Core Release 5)?  The specific printer is a Cannon i550, I have tried downloading something named "bjfilterpixus550i - 2.2-1.i386" but when I try to install (double clicking the .rpm file) I get the message "Unable to retrieve software information".

What am I doing wrong :(
