Mandriva has pretty good hardware and printer support out of the box so you shouldnt have too many problems installing the printer

I can't help you with the Zen player (I don't even have an mp3 player but I hear iRiver is good) but the printer ... That's something else.
How have you tried setting it up? There are a couple of ways to do it, but I think the best way is to use KDE's built-in print manager and to use CUPS as the default print server. I went through your problem with my Canon and it turned out to be a bad printer cable. I'd be surprised if your Lexmark didn't work in the end because they contribute (I think) to open source development.
CUPS (errrr.. I haven't checked but something like Common Unix Print Server) supports printing over networks etc ... so it's pretty good. Mandriva includes a lot of open source printer drivers.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
