I have a form with 3 TextBoxes unbound.  The user will enter all of the data in those 3 boxes.  When a button is clicked I would like to pass those three into parameters that I have already set-up in my crystal report and then print the report without preview.  How can this be done??

and to be able to print without the preview screen, you can call the PrintToPrinter method of the ReportDocument object.
