CUPS, is the default printing system for Mandrake Linux 9.0, but "PDQ" (Print don't queue) is also an option. If you will set up a print server you should use cups. CUPS allow you to queue documents when a lot of users on the network are trying to print. You can install your printer now during the install process or wait after installation to use the Mandrake control center to install the printer.
