PS Problems

I want to have Mma save some graphics as  post script (or even eps).  
When I use "Save as EPS" in the menu I get very bad quality for some  
reason. What I'm doing now is the following: copying the cell that  
contains the graphics into a separate notebook, then under the print  
menu I save the notebook as ps. This gives good quality, but the  
annoying feature is that it also places the notebook title at the top  
of the page. 

I just got a new book that seems to be pretty nice (Mathematica: A
Practical Approach by Nancy Blachman -- you should check it out if
you are rather new to Mma like myself) and it said I could use
"Display" to write ps -- Display["",graphics]. However,
the output "" is not quite ready for a printer yet.
I need to process this file some how with "psfix". Do I do this
from a shell? When I tried "psfix" the command was
not found; however, "psfix" is in my man pages. Does anyone know
what could be wrong here? Thanks.
