Printing with Wine

I'm a relative newcomer to Wine, never having done much more than play
Freecell with it until now.
But right now, I'm trying to get an old program - Claris Works 3 (pc
version) working under it. Everything is fine until I attempt to print
with it - then, I get an error message saying that the printer cannot be
The printing section of the Wine config file looks like this:
"LPT1:" = "|lpr"
"LPT2:" = "|gs -sDEVICE=bj200 -sOutputFile=/tmp/fred -q -"
"LPT3:" = "/dev/lp3"
This is not a Claris Works specific problem. Word can find the
(windows) printer but states there is a problem with it and recommends
re-installation. (There is no problem under Windows).
I'd be prepared to settle for the ability to print to a postscript file
that I can print out under linux.
I'm using Mandrake 8.2 and running Codeweavers Wine build 20020904-7.
All constructive advice gratefully received.
For me, morning begins when I realize that the soft warm body curled up next
to me is a cat. (Kinky Friedman - Frequent Flyer)
