Printing Landscape

Having searched the archives and digests, I've seen the question asked,
but nobody replied with an answer.

How do I tell an HP Laserjet III to print the next file landscape using
the smbclient?

What we're doing here is have a mainframe pick up selected print files
and ftp them to a Linux box running RH 5.0 and Samba. Then a Perl script
will parse a filter and file table and route the print to Win95 / NT
machines and services scattered around the base, either as email, print,
a file on the users machine, or convert it to html. 

Well this is mostly working, but then along came some 132 column
files...... arrghh

Appreciate any thoughts, ideas, or solutions,
