I think that's definetely not the way to go, because if the computer on which 
the printer is shared goes off, the printer become unavailable for all others 
computers... The big advantage of a network printer is that it doesn't 
require a "host" computer to work.

The workaround I found untill now (LPT -> File -> JD.EXE) is working okay, but 
if anyone found another way of printing to a DirectJet net printer under DOS 
(without using MS Client), I am still interested ;-)
