Wine and printing


I would like to ask a question but i am not sure if this is the correct place for wine, so feel free to change my thread.

I have ubuntu dapper on a sony vaio fe-21m. I have to use wine because i need some programs for my job. I use Autocad 2000 with some success. The problem is when i have to print a drawing. I don't have a plotter so in windows i plot in file and then send it to someone with plotter. In windows you have to add a printer from the control panel and then choose it from the autocad installation cd. I wonder if there is a way to add a plotter in the same way in wine. I search internet, but the answers i find is for printers connected in linux system and not the way i need.

The following web page is an evaluation of AutoCAD 2000 on Wine. It says that printing works well. I would guess that you do exactly the same thing as you would do if you were running AutoCAD 2000 on Windows.
