True black and white printing on my Cannon Pixma--can it be done?

I have a Cannon Pixma MX 860. I want it to print in black and white only, but the printer has other ideas about wants to do and is asserting its will.
Does anyone have experience in forcing a printer to print in black and white only, particularly a Cannon?
A few notes:
1. Yes, I have my printing preferences set to grey scale on my computer. I do not see any menu options on the printer itself to only print in black.
2. I have also checked online, and seen previous questions on Metafilter. None of them have the same printer as me, so I'm not certain that the suggestions would work.
3. Please don't suggest a new printer. I'd like to get the one I have to do what I want before making any new purchases.
