The best way to disable a banner or formfeed is to setup the system or user login script to capture the q and disable banner.

Example this can be put in system or user login script.

#servername\sys\public\capture l=1 q=your print q Nb Nff noti

The l= is for your port # 1 2 or 3 q is your q name and nb is for no banner nff is for no form feed and noti is for no time out if you print from dos.

set it to print to the captured port lpt1 lpt2 and let netware handle the capture, do not capture in windows 95.  Simply print to local port and let the netware shell grab it and send it to the network printer.

Keep in mind there are 2 possible banners here.  One is Novell that everyone mentioned here and another one can be an HP banner.  I have seen this HP banner when using Jetdirect.  Xerox networked printers add their own banners too.  Just a thought..
