I recomend CUPS ( for printing. It's what I use with my Epson 700 through a USB/Parallel adapter. It works really well and is really easy to setup. Once you install it you can set it up through a browser interface (localhst:631) or a terminal prompt. Also you may want to look into gimp-print which provides drivers for various printer software. CUPS will have good drivers for Epson printers but gimp-print will probably have a Epson 740 driver (it has a 700 driver).

I'm sure you can find the cups*.ppc.rpm in the software list. It'll conflict with lpr but thats ok CUPS replaces some of its files. The doc files can be long to read through. So if you want me too I can send you the specific steps you need to go through to set it up.

good luck,
