Description of problem:
After completing install I logged into my system using my created
user and password. GNOME was the desktop. At this point the printer
connected to USB was detected as being added to the system. The popup
seemed to say it had trouble determining the printer drive, so a
window was displayed to pick a driver. The HP printer was
automatically selected in left part of the split pane, and the psc1200
series driver was selected in the right part of the split
pane. However there are 3 line with drivers shown to be the psc1200
series driver, with no way to tell any difference between them. I
guess thats why auto-selection of the driver had failed. I decided to
pick the 3rd one for no particular reason. Picking this, completed
the loading of GNOME.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Haven't tried to reproduce, the next time I logged into gnome, it kept this

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
3 drivers listed, now way to tell any difference

Expected results:
Expect some way to tell a difference in the listed drivers.

Additional info:
System AMD 64 bit Athlon 2400
200 GB SATA hard drive
512 MB Ram Memory

USB - printer HP PSC 1210

if I'm not doing something that needs the extra performance. )
