I just converted a customer from Novell 5.0 to Server 2003  In Novell you capture ports to print so I can print screen from DOS programs. I don't want the customer to have to print screen and paste into a wordpad to print the screen because they did not have to in Novell.  I dont want them to think they are loosing fuctions. Is there a way to print screen to a queue  on the 2003 server from XP

Hi Brendle,
If I understand you correctly, you need to map a printer port to a network printer.

You can do this with the command:
NET USE LPT1: \\server\printshare

This will map LPT1 to the specified printer.

Does that help?
