Go to Control Panel, Rightclick on the generic  printer and select Properties. In Properties you will find Device Settings and in that set the default paper size to what you want.

Hope that helps.

It should have 'custom' in which you can define your special paper size.

In windows NT environment the custom form sizes are controlled by server properties, go to start settings printers or printers and faxes then select the word "file " then "server properties" there you can add a custom form size. The form size will then be available to the printers that have the physical capabilities of printing on tha size paper.
