do I get this right, you print from a unix machine, but ht eprinter is
connected to a windows box?

and that line is having the 'stairs effect' like this:
this is 
        a line of
                  text with stairs

which unix (linux, i presume) are you using? does that one have some
kind of printer setup? you shouldnt just 'connect to' a printer but if I
guess right (If you had provided more infos at first, I wouldnt have to
guess), you should be able to find some printer setup tool within your
admin tools. There, configure the 'printer connection' you made with
that windows box to convert ascii text from 'unix line endings' to
'MS-DOS line endings'.
