CBM 8032P control codes

I got some paper for my 8032P printer.  The paper has 2 lines high
horizontal reddish stripes separated by 2 lines high blank areas.
It is a 3-fold sheet, so I can print three copies at once.  The paper
is ideal for this printer, since the stripes are exactly as wide as
the printing area (x*10+6 characters; I didn't count the characters
of my "1234567890..." test pattern).

But now the problem: How can I convince the printer to print lower-case
characters?  I tried sending ctrl+n to the printer, but it had no effect.

A related note: I got a 8-bit ISA card by National Instruments that
implements an IEEE-488 bus.  I even found Linux drivers for it, but I
haven't tried it out yet.  Has anyone tried to interface Commodore
IEEE-488 peripherals (disk drives and printers) with "real" IEEE-488
networks?  Are there any incompatibility issues?  I might try to turn my
spare PC (48 MB of RAM, 75 MHz Pentium) into some sort of a disk server.
