Sometimes this is a problem with the JetDirect card.  (If your using one.)
Try telnetting to the JetDirect card and use the "/" to find the status of

They are both set up as raw printers, since I have the printer drivers
installed on the Win98 box, and don't need to send the print jobs through
another filter on the Linux box.
