printing with wipro lq dsi

I am using opensuse 10.2 and wipro lq dsi 5235 printer ( 24 pin 132 col DMP).
whenever i try to print, the printer advances the page by about one inch. therefore the last few lines and bottom footer spill over on to the next page.
On the next page after printing it would eject the page.
What could be the solution?
I have tried both as IBM compatible DMP and Epson compatible printer.
The PC is AMD athlon XP 64 bit with 2 GB Ram
