In this regard Windows XP is different from 98 & Me.

To add a custom page size directly in the driver in Windows 2000 and XP do
the following:

1. Start | Printers & Faxes
2. Click File, Server Properties
3. Check, Create New Form, Form Name: "New Name"
4. Form description: put in the measurements: ... Then click Save
Form

You will then have this custom page available for the printer.

If you want to do this in code there is an article that may help at

This is the way you would have to do it in VB 6, since there is no way to
add a custom form without API calls in VB 6. I don't know if VB.net has an
easy method for this or not. A quick look didn't expose one for me.
