It might not be LPD; what does the banner page look like?  There is 
an LPD switch (for /etc/printcap) to suppress header (banner) pages 
called, oddly enough, sh.  The newer HP printers I've seen (we just 
got a new HP8100DN) have internal settings for this as well.  The 
printer banner was enabled by default; I had to telnet into the 
printer to turn it off.  You can also do it on the printer console.
