    The printer driver is already included in OS X 10.6. See this:

    To add a printer queue to the printer list, go to Print & Fax prefs and click on "+" (add). Wait in default browser window until printer is found (up to 30 secs). OS X should find driver, may ask if it's OK to update.
    Then finish up. Done. Print.

    For troubleshooting, try the printer on another computer and also try a different cable.

    BTW - did you do Page setup before printing, to make sure the correct page size was available?
