What apps make use of HP banner printing to Z-fold paper?

I want to print a number of large images on listing (continuous) paper.

I have a number of HP deskjet printers around our business (e.g. Deskjet 840c, 640C).
I've found they have a "banner printing" option which allows them to print to continuous paper.

What I HAVEN'T found is an application which appears to make use of this.
Alternatively, I may have the right apps but not have a proper understanding of how to perform a print job using banner printing.

My ideal application to print these images from would be Adobe Photoshop 7 but I also have access to Adobe Illustrator, the MS Office suite, QuarkXpress.

Whilst I can change the printer settings to enable banner printing, I do not seem to be able to specify "A4 banner" as the page size for any print jobs.  If the page setup for any job is A4 or letter or similar, the job will print only that part which fits these formats.

What am I doing wrong?

There are no normal apps that print unlimited-length banners. Apps like Illustrator and Quark do allow you to use large page sizes, but you will need to specify "Custom" paper size.
