What ppd are you using with this printer? Is the printer capable of
postscript? If not, you will have to use one of the foomatic ppds
which may or may not do color (I don't know). You may have to do some
searching on linuxprinting.org. It's almost certain the problem is
the ppd you're using.
If the printer does postscript just use the ppd from the manufacturer,
and you will certainly get color.
