Thanks John,
When I try to print, I get an error message that says Oz can't find  
the "tex.pro" or "tex-std.pro" files that are correctly loacted in the  
search path...it's strange. My printer works fine with all other apps  
on the iMac. I can still create my papers using my old G4 but would  
like to get Oz working on the new system.
