Advance photo specifies photo paper - unless you have photo quality paper in the printer the quality will be shit

You can print directly from within VirtualPC to any printer on your OS/2 host, no matter if it is connected directly to LPT1 or any other LPT port or via USB:

Basically you have to setup your host printer as an LPD printer and let the guest print via an TCP/IP port to that LPD printer.

Works with any printer and is rockstable.

Don't use peer share and Microsoft network stuff for that purpose: It works, too but you will experience random lockups of the host.

Best regards,
Herwig

What is "epsonprintcd"?

Earlier this year I purchased three Epson R200 and three copies of Discus design software (http://www.magicmouse.com/), and gave them to my three graphic designers for designing/printing CDs.

This works great on their Windows machines but I only have OS/2. I don't have Odin installed -- does anyone know if Discus will run on it? (http://www.magicmouse.com/ or free demo http://www.magicmouse.com/h_download_demos.html) There are only Win and Mac versions. I would like to use Epson R200 + Discus on OS/2 if possible.
