LexMark Z52 and DOS Printing?

By b_russ ·
Can you not print to a Lexmark Z52 printer in DOS? Just bought one and I can't even do a dir >LPT1 It just sits there and does nothing. Prints fine in Windows. Has anyone else heard of this problem with these printers?

Are you shelling to DOS or booting up to DOS?

Good answer! If you shell to DOS (DOS from within Windows) it should work. If you boot to DOS you have to install a DOS driver before it will work.
