I was able to get the rpm packages installed using "rpm -i --nodeps". The printer is now running fine with cups. I also want to get Canon's utilities running but I'm getting a "spooler error" when i try to fire them up. I managed to solve that problem on the i560 I had but at this point I can't remember how I did it. Once I work out the Canon utilities, I'll tackle the scanner part of the beast.
