Custom Print Drivers

Ok, I know this isn't really the place for it, but I thought perhaps (at least from what I know) that being VB is related to C/C++, someone here might know. I am looking to write a custom printer driver. For basics, I would say, like to control the part that holds the ink using the arrow keys on my keyboard. Is that even possible? Any information on how to go about creating a driver at all would be of great interest, and much appreciated.Thanks in advance.

Printer drivers are technically written in Assember, however you can write in Windows-style C and compile. This looks like a good starting article: http://www.osronline.com/article.cfm?article=20. Note the printer must actually be able to move the carriage to arbitrary positions - or else no matter what commands you send to it, you won't get anywhere. :)
