May I also say "Ditto" on this. I have a Canon i850, which is connected to my LAN via a Dlink DP300 Print Server. I would love to have any sort of printing functionality from my linux system.

Probably not the answer you want, but I found proprietary drivers at http://www.turboprint.de. They are free to try. Anything above low quality gets printed with a Turboprint logo on it. I ended up shelling out 29 euros for a license to stop that. I can confirm that both of your printers are supported. I don't mind paying money for good software and these drivers are excellent. My PIXMA iP2000 prints beautifully.

I would agree, Turboprint is an excellent piece of software and it saves spending hours looking for drivers. It's the easiest method of installing printers on Linux - well worth the money. :-)
