Kyocera TaskAlpha 550 C printer will not print color, or print at all on Mac OS 10.6.7 machines

Hello,
I am trying to get our Kyocera TaskAlpha 550 C printer to work with our Mac OS 10.6.7 machines. I have installed the drivers from a disc and when that didn't work I went to the website. I have tried IP printing as well as using a generic driver. Using the generic driver, it will print but not in color. When I use the actual drivers for the machine, it sees the printer, connects with it but gives a generic "error "message in the print queue and doesn't print. If it helps, I can ping the printer.

Are there any jobs in the print queue? If so, delete them and try again.

this is network wide. The drivers don't work correctly. It prints fine in B&W

and the answer is....use the generic print drivers. The ones developed by Kyocera and Toshiba won't work for a network printer.
