Considering that this printer is certified to work with SuSe Linux, 
I think you probably did a misconfiguration somewhere. 

See :

The fact that you have problems with ALL printers in CUPS seems to 
imply that either your CUPS is incorrectly 
compiled/installed/configured, or that a kernel device is missing 
(/dev/lp0 ?)

Why would anyone have more time than you to deal with your problems 
for free ?

I'm sure you could obtain paid for support from www.easysw.com
