Default Epson 1280, IDCS (Win)

Is anyone out there printing InDesign files to an Epson 1280 (Windows XP Pro)?

I get great results printing photographs directly from Photoshop, which makes sense, as it's a photo printer.

But trying to print page layouts from InDesign is a nightmare. I can't get accurate color, or even semi-accurate color, no matter what I do. I've tried using CMYK, RGB, and Pantone Spot, and the colors are still way, way off. I need to print proofs of a 2-color cookbook, and I can't get close enough on the color to show the proofs to the client.

Does anyone have a good formula for printing to this printer? Or do I use it for photos only, and invest in something else for printing page layouts? I sort of miss my old DeskJet 720C. It committed suicide (did a backflip off my desk), or I'd still have it.
