This should make your ML-4500 work with Linux and CUPS. You have two options with this printer and Linux using lpd and using CUPS. I have uploaded both 'drivers' to this site so you may choose the right files for your system. Mandrake 7.2 comes default with CUPS instead of LPD, so just follow the included instructions and you should be on your way. Samsung said that they created this specifically for Mandrake. For Samsung Support for Linux, call Sung Hyun @ Samsung Electronics. He is the only tech support rep. that knows linux, and he is the one that emailed me these files. His phone # is 877-873-7279. His email address is email@example.com. He will do his best to try and help you out.
