Printer prints part of document and then stops.  Reinstallin driver did not help.  I am using Windows 98.

 - your "uni-directional" printer-cable cannot send
the "please stop sending data to the printer for a while"
command from the printer to the computer.
Get a "bi-directional" printer-cable.
 - the above command *IS* being sent, but is *IGNORED*
Reconfigure the printer-port.

Try using the "print to a file" option,
and see if the entire document is written to the file.
If it is, then it's not a "software" problem
in the application which creates the print-file;
instead, it's a problem due to the fact that the printer
cannot print as fast as it can receive data to be printed.
You can change the bios to "Standard"
as opposed to EPP, SPP.
I have also had this problem.  I had to change
the spool settings from EMF to RAW.
