Now that you have gotten rid of the error messages (I think that is a 
good sign), have you tried completely deleting (or renaming) your 
current .wine directory, and allowed Wine to create a new one from 
scratch? Perhaps some entries were left in the registry that are 
affecting thing.

For what it is worth, a registry entry in ~/.wine/system.reg for the 
remote printer should look something like this. I suspect that the 
[Port] entry means that you must be able to print to the printer using 
lpr. Does that work for you? That is, does a command like this allow you 
to print to the remote printer:

lpr -Pi560 FILE:

The registry entry:

[System\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\Print\\Printers\\hp_kotao] 1151093208
"Description"="WINEPS Printer using CUPS"
"Location"="<physical location of printer>"
"Print Processor"="WinPrint"
"Printer Driver"="PS Driver"
"Separator File"="<sep file?>"
"Share Name"="<share name?>"
