Thanks to all that responded to my request for help on a printcap entry
for a DEC LNO3 printer. I received a good bit of useful information, but
the key was that this printer required a null moden cable. After quickly
rigging up a cable, I started to get some output.

Thanks to:

Here are some examples of printcap entries for this printer.
