Did you try to print a test page?  If so, what happens?

What kind of network? (domain or workgroup?)

How is printer connected to network? (does it have its own IP or through a                
computer?)  

Is there a print server?

Program versions?

Fedora version?

KDE or Gnome?

I',m using two printers connected to a Netgear PS110 (print server).  Brother 
HL1440 & Epson Photo Stylus 2200.  Both are working fine in both linux (FC3) 
and winblows (XP & 2000 pro).  Queue type is LPD, queue name is P1(laseer) or 
P2(ink jet), server is 192.168.0.70.

Give us more info so we can help.
