There are many ways, but one of the most useful is the "mtools"

mformat, mcopy mdir, and so on, and treat it just like a DOS
Floppies formatted with Unix file systems, or used as simple tar
archives are also possible, but considerably less useful.

That's an excellent question. Once upon a time, the simple
answer was "lpd", but things have become more complicated. For
the most part, there _arent_ any print settings. Do what I do:
don't print. It's better for the environment that way.
