Lenord, Thanks for the help.
The above rpm checks all indicated that I have the same version.
I downloaded the latest cups ppd file for the HP Desk Jet 970Cse and
placed in in the specified directory-/usr/share/cups/model, restarted
cups and enabled the printer. Deleted the printer, tried to re configure
it from GNOME, rebooted etc, etc.
Still no Luck!
I also have KDE 3.2.0-0.1 installed, could that be a problem???
