How do I set up Lexmark laser printers on Unixware 7?

I need to print PCL forms on Lexmark T630 and E321 laser printers connected by Zonet TCP/IP print servers to a SCO Unixware 7 system.  I'm a UNIX novice, though I have 30 years in computers.  I am unfamiliar with UNIX printing systems.

I have successfully installed the Lexmark Unixware 7 drivers for the printers we're using and confirmed the installation through Lexmark's "lexprt" utility.  These drivers support Postscript and PCL. I've set up a logical device and print queue for one of the T630s and have no difficulty using it as a text printer.  However, we cannot print PCL forms to it.

Apparently, our packaged application looks to data set up by the SCOAdmin/Printer Setup Manager to determine the capabilities of a printer. To make this printer's capabilities known, we need to add entries to the /usr/lib/scoadmin/printer/model.stz file, which in turn requires an entry in the terminfo database.  I've tried to build these entries, but they're not well documented for someone unfamiliar with UNIX printing.

They usually look for printer names in /etc/printcap file.
Each printer here is represented as chain of capabilities and filters.
In your case you may need some specific printer name, some unique capabiliti or no unneeded filters, just remote backend
