It sounds like the print driver on NT or 2k is overriding the draft mode.  Are they the correct drivers?
Slink9 is correct, with almost all printers it is true that driver settings override the settings of the printer, look carefully because there is the printing preferences and also properties of the machine, they have to be set both.
Good luck,

Pete

Try installing the printer as a generic text printer. It seems to work better than many of the dot-matrix drivers for doing draft style printing.

I'm confused.  I question if itis the proper model drivers and you accept someone else's answer.  Explain, please.

i was using the correct drivers...the problem was solved by using drivers for a different model
