Okay, I tried cat list.txt >/dev/lp0 since it has more lines and I have 
conventional printer paper in the printer and everything just hung.  The 
interesting thing is, earlier I was able to use real dos (no windows) on a 
dos box with that printer hooked up and the printer correctly printed a 
file.  I think I have a broken printing system here and there's so many 
parts in all of it I don't know where to begin to locate the defectives.
