You can also adjust unprintable areas of your document in your printers
folder. Double click on your "My Computer" icon, open the "Printers"
folder, select your printer, and click on File then Properties. Now, I'm
running WindowsNT using a network printer at work, so I'm going by memory
here. There should be something under the Device Settings tab that allows
you to define the unprintable areas for your documents.
Hope that helped.
