I am not sure that it will actually fix your installation, but it should 
not be that difficult to install a printer. So you don't have a printer? 
you don't have cups, I assume. So you want to go through the steps for 
installing the "psdrv" stuff at:

If there is a part of this you don't understand, you will need to give 
more information than "it is completely baffling".

Once installed, in your ~/.wine/config file, make the LPT1: device point 
to a file, and wine should print to a file just fine:
"FILE:" = "tmp.ps"
"LPT1:" = "tmp.ps"

My real email is akamail.com at dclark (or something like that).
