    If you are running "real DOS", booted separately, the only problems you will
    have is finding drivers for recent printers. Since IBM still has many
    "enterprise customers," and still supports PC-DOS, that shouldn't be all that
    hard, if you have a real printer (not a "win-printer, as mentioned in another
    thread.) BTW, PC-DOS 7 is an excellent product - the most stable DOS ever
    AFAIK.

    If you are running the crippled DOS inlcuded with W2K, you will have no end
    of troubles. T'aint' worth it IMO.
