Hmmm, a desktop with Whitebox on it. Interesting.
So, a GX280 is not a PowerEdge, you probably need foomatic to get that USB printer working, and if kudzu doesn't respond, you may want to try an OS made for a desktop.
Foomatic -> http://www.linuxprinting.org/foomatic.html
Fedora -> http://fedora.redhat.com/download/
Best of luck.
