How do I go about modifying the printcap.local file for certain queues, so that I can specify parameters such as font size, landscape, etc?  I am running RedHat Linux ES 2.1.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.  Thanks in Advance.

/etc/printcap works only for relatively simple printers (it may work with a PCL printer), but does not work with e.g. inkjet printers that require that an application renders all text and graphics into bitmap data.

What printer are you using?

If it's a PostScript printer or a an Inkjet, I would recommend CUPS. This allows you to specify all sorts of defaults.
