Tonight, I confirmed that my Kaypro-rebranded Juki 6100 does in fact work! It needs a little lubrication and rust removal in the ribbon feed system (I'll take care of that at work), but I can do "cat file.txt > /dev/lp0" and get it to print raw text. While this would probably be sufficient for most things, I'd really like to write a PPD file for it, so that it might be used with CUPS under *NIX systems.

I'm looking for anyone with experience in writing a PPD file to get me going in the right direction. I've done a lot of parallel port programming under Linux, but never written anything like this.
