    Welcome to the forums!

    That printer works "perfectly" with Linux according to the OpenPrinting.org database and uses the hpijs driver:

    OpenPrinting database - Printer: HP Deskjet F2180

    If you have the proper driver installed, I'd recommend using the CUPS interface to add and configure your printer by opening your web browser and then entering localhost:631 into the browser location bar.

    Note that Mandriva 2008 is almost a couple of years old now, so a newer Mandriva release might have better hardware detection and added features that you could make good use of.
