>I have a Canaon Multipass F50 printer which doesn't have any drivers for Linux.  Though it may be beyond the intent of Wine, would it be possible to get my printer to work in linux through Wine by installing the windows print manager and my windows printer driver under Wine?  If not, any thoughts on expanding wine to do so?

Wine doesn't replace Linux, it works on top of Linux. So whatever you do in
wine it eventually goes through Linux. That's why you always need native
Linux drivers to access a device, wine does only "redirecting".
