Thanks for the driver tip.

I installed it, and at first it didn't work, but thanks to your
verbose flag (THANK YOU!) I figured out the problem.. lpstyl.c
hung when it tried to identify the printer. I guess sending the
"?" string doesn't work on the 1200? Who knows. So anyway, I just
commented out all that code and forced it to be KIND_SW2, and it
works just peachy.

This is excellent. I've been wanting to print postscript from
my machine for months!!
