 redirecting non-PS to a file

Please direct me to a different newsgroup (comp.pc.??) if this isn't
the place for this Q.

I'm using a DOS program that expects to print directly to a dinky
parallel printer of some sort. The computer is on a Novell network
with an HPIIIsi in PS mode, so I can't print anything.

What I would like to do is redirect the output (from lpt1 or lpt2) to
a file so I could use some other utility to print it to the HPIIIsi or
transport by floppy to some other place.

Tech support at the software place thought there was a utility
something like "lprx" or "lpxr" to do this.

archie inundated me with lpr* items. Does anybody out there know
_where_ to get the _right_ thing?

Any other suggested solutions to this problem? Switching the HP to
something other than PS is out (the secretaries would kill me).

Thanks in advance.
