If there is no driver on Canon's Website, then there is no driver. Period.
Stop looking.

You have a very old printer that is probably not supported anymore, and you
will not be able to get a driver.

I once upgraded a machine from Win98 to WinXP, and loaded SP3. The Xerox
printer that came with the machine with W98 would not work under XP, SP3.

Having said all of that, I don't think the driver is your problem. A driver
issue would cause the printer to not even start or to print control
characters instead of whatever the print job consisted of. Bands of print
should be a hardware issue with the printer itself.

I believe there are no drivers for your printer.

I can read. Since a machine that operates under W98 won't actually run any
software that matters anymore, then I assume the printer formerly worked
fine, and you expect it to still work fine. My suggestion is based on the
idea that it has been sitting in the back of a closet for many years and you
dragged (drug) it out and want to plug it in. I assume you have no actual
test bed to verify that it works in W98 because any software that works in
W98 is not likely to work on any operating system currently available.

None of this matters though, Canon has no drivers for that printer so you
have to get a new one.
