[PLUG] CUPS headaches

I have a simple SAMBA/CUPS/VMware server setup for someone. Within
VMware there is a w98 virtual machine that runs an OLD piece of DOS
software. I have captured LPT1 in windows and pointed it to CUPS. The
problem is that this DOS software gives a "printer not ready error",
when I try to print from it more than once after SAMBA and CUPS are
restarted. The first print will go through fine and look just fine,
anything after that (barring a smb and cups restart) is a no go. The
fact that this happens makes me suspect SAMBA/CUPS. I've tried fooling
with permissions and such but that didn't help at all. Can anyone out
there in PLUG land help?
