Well, if you have OzTeX installed, you should just be able to 
double-click on the postscript document and OzTeX will launch and 
send the document to the printer you have OzTeX configured for. Very 
quick and easy, I find (although not quite as easy as just dropping 
the postscript document on the desktop printer as we could do in 
earlier Mac OS versions.
