Check for a file named MSDOSPS.EXE in your Mma directory.  Use it to 
convert your PostScript file to Encapsulate PostScript (EPS) form, which 
includes all the subroutine definitions needed to print the plot.  This is 
also available in version 2.2 using File\Export with file type selected to 
be .EPS; I can't remember which version of the Windoze front end first had 
this feature.
