In your Windows 95 directory, look for a file called MATHLINK.INI (or in
the Explorer, it will say MATHLINK as the filename and Configuration Settings
as the File type).  Delete the file and re-add the protocol as per the
instructions that came with the protocol.  That will probably fix the
speed problems with launching the kernel.

Select a cell and under the File menu, click Export.  Choose EPS.  The
converter is not perfect (e.g. fonts don't come out quite right), but it
does a reasonable job.  If you want a perfect conversion, you should get
RASTERPS, item 0203-634 on MathSource.  It's a DOS program, though, so
it's somewhat less convenient to use.
