A raw queue has no filter, it just sends the job straight to the printer.
Since you are using cups and have this frontend for printing which
recreates your /etc/printcap file on the fly, I am not sure how you
would go about creating a raw queue. You might try fooling around with
printer/settings and see if you can create a raw queue with it. It may
already exist. If it does, just send your print jobs to it from your
windows clients.

If you want to not use the z53 client software on windows, you will need to
set up a queue which uses the z53.sh as the filter on your linux server.
Again, printer/settings or whatever might let you do this. I sent a copy of my
printcap which does that.
