This is a 300x300 DPI laser printer with an HP LJ-III emulation. An  
optional card allows to print in PostScript Level and Level 2. How much  
RAM is installed? Could you print any documents from Mac OS X? Have you  
installed the right PPD?

If you tried to print with PostScript fonts: how did you setup the PS  
fonts download? Or: to which file is the sym-link  
pointing? Is it pdftex_ndl14.map (no down load) or  pdftex_dl14.map  
(down load PS fonts?) Could be it's necessary to download all PS fonts.  
You can change this either in i-Installer under `Configure only´ or on  
the command line as:

	sudo updmap --setoption dvipsDownloadBase35 true

I think this does not recreate the sym-link  
dvipdfm.map, so as final step this is needed:

	sudo updmap


	sudo updmap --nohash (might save some time)

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
