I often use two form sizes and styles for a dot matrix printer that we have for billing, payroll, and other things. It would be very convenient if I could set up two instances of the same printer, rename one of them, and then use different settings for each of them. I could then avoid changing the form and the paper size every time I wanted to print something different. The computer I am trying to set this up on is running xp pro. I have attempted to use the "add new printer" wizard but after stepping through it, I can not get it to add another instance of the same printer.

Thanks for your suggestions in advance.
