For a print filter that will take care of the stair steping, try
sed -e 's/$/'`echo -ne '\r'`'/g'

we did manage an initial transfer with smbclient reading and writing
to win98 and we did get part of a file printed with:

smb \> open x
smb \> print x

it printed a few lines, but was stair-stepped. a couple of
questions... is there a way to get smbclient to queue to
the win98 printer queue without having to do it interactively?
is there an easy way to deal with the stair-step problem?

ideally I'd like to be able to pipe a file into a script
or program to have it print the content of stdin, via
smbclient to win98 //eeyore/apollo (the printer's
"share" name). its an apollo p2200 (HP "brain").

I'm wondering if there is a way to create a printcap
defining the printer to provide for the <lf> to <cr,nl>
text conversion.

the win98 client cannot see the samba shares (2 fat32
disks and some directories on the unix system). I know
there is a route to eeyore (win98) from pooh (freebsd 4.4
with samba 2.2.2) because I was able to print to eeyore's
local printer (//eeyore/apollo) and to manipulate files
on its shares (c: //eeyore/c and d: //eeyore/d).

output of smbclient connecting to eeyore (win98se) and
pooh (freebsd 4.4 with samba 2.2.2), followed by /etc/smb.conf.
