Well, I can print just fine with several apps under Wine (using CUPS and 
RH7.3). But I have never tried to print from notepad. So I tried it, and 
it doesn't work! Looks like a bug somewhere, and not a problem with your 
configuration. I guess whatever is breaking notepad is also breaking 
Lotus Notes.

You might want to check whether a bug is filed on that, and if not, 
maybe file a bug.
