The spooler section of my wine config is as below. This is untouched
from the 20041201 source tree and as you can see not commented out.  I
suspect that LPT1 should have a different incantation.  Could you give
the command to me, if that's the problem?

"FILE:" = "tmp.ps"
"LPT1:" = "|lpr"
"LPT2:" = "|gs -sDEVICE=bj200 -sOutputFile=/tmp/fred -q -"
"LPT3:" = "/dev/lp3"

(Bill, I haven't tried standing on a chair and reciting poetry - yet :-)
