You can print to every device you are able access via the lpr command. So if you are able to use lpr to print to your printer, TextMaker is able to do so, too (using the same lpr command).

You can get help about the lpr command here:

We're sorry but we don't know how to get your printer to work with lpr. It would be best to check out some Zaurus related forums about printing or ask the manufacturer of your printer how to print with it on a Zaurus using IrDa/lpr.

I think I once ported rlpr to the Zaurus, rlpr is simplified lpr command that only talks with a remote printer (via the lpr protocol). Since up to now, printing was really limited on the Z I did not have much use for it. If you want I can try and dig it up.
