    Is there a way to make a real negative, so I can print it with my enlarger, from a digital image?

    Yes, there is and it is very simple.

    Use a transparency based material that will allow the "printing" of a negative. I've used Pictorico but there are several others out there that are just as good. They make some very nice analog prints either with an enlarger or by contact printing if you make a LF negative.
