Try using a newer driver that what you have now. It may resolve your problem.

Have you properly captured the LPT port for the printer so that it will print from MS-DOS applications?

Hmmm, ok, try this; from the DOS prompt, type the following command:

echo "Test!" > LPT1

If the port is properly set up you should see the word "Test!" print out on the printer.
