Disable print dialogue for kiosk running Windows XP

I have a kiosk on a dedicated machine running Windows XP.

I really need to find a method to disable the print dialogue from showing to the user when a print is requested.  The print request will come from Flash MX running in a projector (so no IE).  

Since this is a dedicated machine running one primary application, it would be OK to completey disable the dialogue for all print requests, not just from the one application.

Flash does not provide this function, and I have had no luck in searching the net for a solution that is not ActiveX or browser related.

While I would prefer a simple solution, I would be willing to purchase a program that would accomplish this task.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Or maybe something like this.

This is a tough one.

Searched Macromedia extensively, did find Flash MX Printing kits; but don't know if they can be used to customize and block output.

Would have really appreciated a response from the Asker so we can ensure that the issue was resolved, but apparently, DigitalReactor has chosen not to remain active in this question.  My assumption is that we've helped and would propose a split.
Thank you,
Asta
