My original question was:

> Is there a way to set the papersize to A4 for a sparcprinter? By the
> NewsPrint manuals, this is available for some HP printers only.
> Is there any help for it?

Lots of people answered, too many to list. Thanks to all of them.

The answer: there is no software way to do it, but adjusting the three
magnets on the side of the paper tray will do the job. However, as
Ann Rautenbach pointed out, nptool still can't be made to use A4 size.
