Thanks, Harry. I did try that, successfully, after a
fashion. The problem was that it was dreadfully slow. Do you know if one
can adjust the port parameters so that it's anywhere near as fast as a
parallel connection? (I didn't play more with this because it would be
awkward to give up my serial port for this.)

Is anyone aware of a way in Windows 98 to redirect output from one LPT: port to another? Here's my problem: The parallel port on my (out of warrany) notebook computer is broken,

If your printer will also accept serial input,  as some do, you can print from your serial port, COM1, by fiddling with the DOS Mode command to assign LPT1 output to COM1.
