I have tried the reccomendations that you guys have suggested with no luck.  Is 
there a site that I could get some sample filters I could try?  I have tried a 
few that were in the freebsd corporate guide.  This printer will work from 
Windows printer spooler and this BSD box can print to a HP just fine.

Here is my current printcap.
corp-admin|hp|laserjet|Hewlett Packard LaserJet 5Si:\
admincolor|LANIER LD160c RPCS:\

And here is the filter
# /usr/local/libexec/crlfilter
# simple parlor trick to add CR to LF for printer
# Every line of standard input is printed with CRLF
# attached.
awk '{printf "%s\r\n", $0}' -
