Keystrokes for dosbox PrintScreen

Hi, folks.

#Question
1. In Win 2000, is there a way to issue a printscreen from a dos box directly to the printer?

#Notes
1. I don't mean "how do I create a screen shot."  I want to avoid using pictures or that much toner printing the black background of a dos box.
2. I thought that I could use the right-side-shift key and the printscreen key like I used to do in Win95.  In Win95, this key sequence causes windows to send the text on the dos box's screen to the printer as if it were being printed from notepad.  However, it doesn't seem to work in Win2000 or WinNT.

#Needed
Keystrokes, settings, or a commercial/shareware command line utility to accomplish this in Win2000/NT.

Bye.

Hi, omk.

We used the "Method 2" from the first link.  It worked just fine.

Thank you.
