If I try to print a 64-pages-RTF document on my Hp1200  I get the error message:

"PCL XL error"
Substym: GE
Error: Internal Overflow or Insufficent Memory

- The Document size is about 200kb.
- The printer is connected directly to my computer
- It's connected to the parallel port.
- Other Documents print without a problem, but they have less pages.
  This document  has also no problem to be printed on other printers.
- OS is Win2k SP4

Though the document is small, the data that is send to the printer gets bigger, especially with that many pages.

You can print in sets, or you can change the behaviour of how documents are sent to the printer.
With these settings you can start to use a spool, or you can choose to print directly to the printer.

Also check the amount of Ram in the printer, try to "lower" the amount of ram in the pc-driver, maybe when you give less data to the printer, it won't give any errors. Could be that the ram in your printer is faulty.
In the printing-dialog you can see how big the job is that you're sending,
