cannot kill DOS print job

We accidentally started a 300 page print out from a DOS program.
Turning off the printer does not kill this job as Windows XP has the spooled file somewhere.
Does anyone know where I can find this file and delete it?

Look here:

Stop the print spooler service (from command line, type "NET STOP SPOOLER")
Then look here for files.  MOVE them to another folder (just in case - never delete always move (or rename)).
C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS
Then type "NET START SPOOLER" to restart the printing services.
Once you're satisfied everything's good, you can delete those files.
