printer setup issue

I am a linux newbie who is in over his head.... We have a 3rd party company hosting our servers and they are running RHEL 4 (actaully is is OEL, but Oracle just rebranded RH) they installed a bunch of printers on the servers there. Our application prints but the formatt is off. When we had the printers here we were running AIX 5.3 and the printers were installed as generic ASCII. they sent me a link to this utility called printpro. when I look at the printer it is set up as generic Postscript. I tried to go into print pro as an admin and reconfigure the printer, however there is no option other then Postscript. So I think it might be how the printer was installed. I looked at the /etc/printcap file and this is the line it has for the printer in question:
is there a way I can see if the printer was installed as a postscript or ASCII and how can I change it.

Apache::Session::Oracle(3pm)				User Contributed Perl Documentation			      Apache::Session::Oracle(3pm)

Apache::Session::Oracle - An implementation of Apache::Session SYNOPSIS
use Apache::Session::Oracle; #if you want Apache::Session to open new DB handles: tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Oracle', $id, { DataSource => 'dbi:Oracle:sessions', UserName => $db_user, Password => $db_pass, Commit => 1 }; #or, if your handles are already opened: tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Oracle', $id, { Handle => $dbh, Commit => 1 }; DESCRIPTION
This module is an implementation of Apache::Session. It uses the Oracle backing store and no locking. See the example, and the documentation for Apache::Session::Store::Oracle for more details. USAGE
The special Apache::Session argument for this module is Commit. You MUST provide the Commit argument, which instructs this module to either commit the transaction when it is finished, or to simply do nothing. This feature is provided so that this module will not have adverse interactions with your local transaction policy, nor your local database handle caching policy. The argument is mandatory in order to make you think about this problem. This module also respects the LongReadLen argument, which specifies the maximum size of the session object. If not specified, the default maximum is 8 KB. AUTHOR
This module was written by Jeffrey William Baker <>. SEE ALSO
Apache::Session::File, Apache::Session::Flex, Apache::Session::DB_File, Apache::Session::Postgres, Apache::Session perl v5.10.1 2010-10-18 Apache::Session::Oracle(3pm)
