on the contrary, printers often will happily reproduce the ASCII code
being sent to them on a parallel port.  The problem is likely to be a
bad memory address somewhere.  Addresses are pretty easy to get wrong.  

Are you using a recent version?  If not, i recommend trying one.  GRUB
upgrades are pretty trivial.  I use GRUB I version 0.97
