Cannot get colour to work. [MacOSX]

i also try to setup my 2490 mf in Leopard.The printer ist connected via lan, so i chose the HP Jetdirect Socket in Printer setup. I followed all the steps in the Install.osx file. Black/white printing works fine, but color doesn't, when i print a color jpg image.
When i print this file, mentioned above, its colored -> perfect:
nc 9100 < testpage-cups-a4-2490-win.prn

but it doesnt work out of Leopard with the normal "Print" button.
its the last thing i need to ban xp (vmware).

any ideas ?

Please read INSTALL.osx.
6)  Now configure the printer
    Choose either 6a) OR 6b)

6a) Mac OS Printer Setup Utility
    Browse to:

6b) CUPS UNIX Printing System
    Browse to:

    Then surf to: http://localhost:631 and follow the CUPS instructions.

    In particular, you can set up Color and other things.

        Set Printer Options -> Color Mode -> Color

thanks for your reply,

i tried out all the color modes in cups. The test page (in cups) worked in color, when i set a color mode, but not the "print" in osx.

Printer Driver: KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2490 MF Foomatic/foo2lava (recommended)

these are my current settings:

(i set this when i tried the color mode "use icm profile")
ICM Color Profile: 2530_2.icm - Resolution 2400

the testpage reads:

to test it, i use the editor seashore, create a colored rectangle. but its always black.
