I don't think a USB printer will work from DOS, but a printer connected to LPT1 (1st parallel port) should work. My Epson Stylus Photo 890 does I think. You can test a printer by doing a DIR at the DOS command line and then pressing the PRINT SCREEN button or by using the command
The reason i was asking is cos i've had problems getting any old inkjet to work. I had to pay out loads for an epson c80 last time and all it's used for is to print out diagdostics from an old machine.
i know what you mean about the USB ports. I'll try a few i have laying around and see what happnes.
