I don't think DSL is making you learn bash.
Also, you don't have to wait for anything.
1.You could possibly use an exisiting printer driver that your current printer can emulate. This may be possible with APSFILTER or CUPS.
2. If not possible, then using DSL-3.0 or (DSL-3.0.1 with unionfs boot option) makes DSL like any other distro in tha you would run your manufactuer's install program. Adding this install program to /opt/bootlocal.sh would auto setup your ppd from within a liveCD or fruagl setup using backup/restore.
If you are only talking about a ppd file that needs to be in /usr/share/cups... Then simply add that to your .filetool.lst. There is even a button in emelfm to do this just by navigating to the file and clicking a button.
Before you Bash, try these standard methods.
