You can print to a Windows printer from UNIX by using the smbprint utility 
that is part of Samba-2.2.5. This utility should be called by the printer 
script in the AT&T print spooler.

Suggest you contact SCO for specific support regarding how to configure the 
print spooling system with a custom script. The custom script you need to use 
is smbprint. Do not forget to configure the script per details inside the 
smbprint tool.
