Dumb Printer Interface

I have a printer setup with the 'dumb' printer interface in sysadmsh.
Whenever I print to the printer I get a banner page before the report and
four pages containing four lines of X's after the report. I have tried 'lp
-o nb' but this has no effect. I have also tried editing the
/usr/spool/lp/models/dumb script but this doesn't seem to have any effect.
Does anyone know how to prevent this banner page and the four pages of X's
from printing?

We are running SCO 3.2v4.2

cd /usr/spool/lp/admins/lp/interfaces
There will be a file with the same name of the printer you have created.Open the file with "vi" editor. Search for the string "nobanner=no" (this will be the default). You have to edit that line and say "nobanner=yes".Now you won't get the banner.
