Since IBM still has many\n"enterprise customers," and still supports PC-DOS, that shouldn't be all that\nhard, if you have a real printer (not a "win-printer, as mentioned in another\nthread.) BTW, PC-DOS 7 is an excellent product - the most stable DOS ever\nAFAIK.\n\nIf you are running the crippled DOS inlcuded with W2K, you will have no end\nof troubles. T'aint' worth it IMO.
