Networked smb printer cutting off page bottoms

Using FC5.
Interesting issue with my Canon LBP 430. (my workhorse printer, parallel port ). I've got it set up as a networked printer on my speedstream router so my entire networked (hard wired) household can print on it. It's showing up as a samba shared printer and I can find it, and print out a test page fine. When I start to print using any program on my linux box, my first page always prints out fine and then from there on, the bottom 1/2" or so of print gets cut off. This is happening in Open Office, printing an e-mail with Thunderbird, or printing a .pdf file. Doesn't matter which desktop I'm using, gnome or kde and it doesn't matter how I adjust print settings in the software I'm using. Has anyone else experienced this problem? and has anyone come up with a workaround? I've searched these forums to no avail and have not had any luck with google either.

This is one of the major reasons that I haven't been able to completely dump windoze.

many thanks in advance for any help.
