Yep, does the same thing!

I don't know where it comes from, I'm totally stuck, even after a
package reinstall (even trying the original /etc/printcap).

I'm now asking myself if its not the motherboard fault (ABIT BE6):
I was obliged to reinstall w$98, and never succeed to have the same
configuration to work well again (I didn't get the SB Live! correctly
installed till I disabled the HPT366 controlers...); and under Linux, 
I can't get my TV card to work well too (it was 4 weeks ago). 
I'll try to exchange it next wednesday to see what will happend.
