'rfc1234' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Don't send them to your "xyz" printer driver, they are 
already formatted, send them directly to /dev/lpt1 or similar.  Or use
a "dumb" driver.   Or better don't waste paper to print RfCs,
they are available online whereever you are... -)

My printers at CERN were usually loaded with A4 paper, US 'letter' is
not readily available there.
