Post Abiword printing with alignment error

Hi. I'vs solved about a million Linux issues just lurking on, but now I've finally got one that hasn't been addressed. I'm printing to a Deskjet 970Cxi via parallel using Redhat 9 with Ximian Desktop 2 running on a Panasonic Toughbook CF-48. I've been using to print, and it prints pretty darn well, but now I've switched to AbiWord 2.0 and while it seems to print the page well, it prints it about 4 inches south of where it needs to be on the page, cutting off the bottom 4 inches or so of the document in the process. Any ideas how I can fix this? I'm not really a Linux newbie, but I'm definitely a Linux printing newbie.

I'd start looking in AbiWord's configuration--that is where the problem shows up. Nothing else seems to have this problem; OpenOffice prints fine.

Like I said, sounds like the problem is in how AbiWord is set up on your computer.

Yep. It's Abiword. The big blank spot shows up in the .ps file when I do a print to file as well. It's not showing up on the "page layout" view in Abiword, though.
