Well, you might want to update your ghostview/ghostscript packages; the
original comes from http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/ . Version 5.5 of ghostscript
should work fine with all printers. Most UNIX systems have 'pstools' package
which can be found on CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive Network); "psselect" or
"psbook" can do your thing (this is what I used to do before I had access to
2-sided printer". Here's a good search engine for CTAN:
http://theory.uwinnipeg.ca/search/ctan-search.html . You can download
ghostscript/ghostview from there as well. Under Linux command "mpage" can
rearange pages in postscript document any way you want. If you're using
windoze or Mac, you're on your own :-).

Bye, Bojan
