Bill- I have not used PAF 3.0, but have used an Epson C82 printer. It has connectors and support for both Parallel (LPT1) and USB cables. Both Parallel (make sure it is a new, expensive, bi-directional parallel cable)and USB drivers and cables work very well in both WinXP and Win98SE, although not at the same time with the same computer.
The only problems with this printer seem to be the clackety clack paper feed and the cost of proprietary ink. But then the ink doesn't smear when you get it wet, and it is supposed to be fade resistant.
But The Epson C82 doesn't do DOS, and PAF 3.0 doesn't do Windows.
Perhaps you might consider installing the latest version of PAF 4 if you have a small Win 95 machine (no Unicode required), or the latest version of PAF 5 (with Unicode support) if you have a larger hard drive and a Win 98SE or XP machine. Then you could import your files into later versions to print with Windows printers.
p.s. Be aware that newer printers tend to require that you go into computer ROM bios (Hold down delete key on bios bootup - before Windows loads) and set the LPT1 (parallel port) to ECP mode, instead of standard mode for higher speed printing and bi-directional support. The Epson driver installation may do this automatically on newer computers, and it also renames the port, as you will see if you go into Windows Device Manager in Control Panel.
