[Samba] CUPS and raw printing

I have replaced an NT4 file/print server with a Samba server (built on
RH9 with all
current patches (kernel 2.4.20-28.9, Samba 2.2.7a-8.9.0, Cups
Having trouble with a DOS application and raw printing. This DOS app
prints to any of several dot-matrix printers, running fan-fold paper.
When I set up a
raw queue and map LPT1 to it, the DOS app prints just fine. However,
manager does absolutely nothing (like ejecting a page) to segregate the
different jobs. This behaviour normally completes printing a job
somewhere in the midst
of a page and stops. When a new job is routed to that printer, it
where the previous job ended. Thus there is output from 2 jobs on the
and the 2nd (or nth) job is not printing aligned at page boundaries.
Is there any config available to set up a queue that is raw as far as
the print stream
is concerned (does no filtering or translation), and yet can eject a
page after each job
to keep different print streams on separate pages?? Any suggestions
will be welcome.
