i did consider doing it by fax but i dont see how it can work as it needs
two modems/lines - 1 to send and another to recieve. plus the fact that my
line wont be free

No... that's the correct newsgroup for problems with XP.

NOTEPAD.EXE has a command line option that will print on the default
printer:

notepad /p filename.txt

Use the task-scheduler to run NOTEPAD.EXE with the "/p" option followed by
the full pathname to the file you want printed.

The newsgroup name is Print_Fax.... it deals with both Printing and Faxing
problems.
