Which, again, goes back to what i said originally:

Your DOS program expects to be running on a real computer, attached to
a real printer. You have what I belive to be a winprinter meaning it
does not work with PCL5 or PostScript languages. Therefore configure
your DOS program to print to a PostScript driver and CUPS should
handle the translation.

If my assumptions about your printer are correct, setting your printer
to use HP LaserJet III driver in CUPS will not work, and I never saw a
PostScript printer that didnt support PCL5.
