Adam, Brooks Internet Software
(with which I have no affiliation) has a remote printing solution called RPM
which is based on the standard LDP/LPR protocols.  About $300 for Win2K
version.  It receives spool files from an AS/400 via a remote output queue
and can print on a LAN PC or save to a PC file. Many features, free trial
... I liked it.  -Dave K.
