There's a couple of things you can do. The notebook front end (at least on version 2.2.2 and later, I can't remember what it's like on earlier releases of 2.2) has the ability to export a selected graphic as an EPS file. Alternatively, you can upgrade to Mathematica 3.0, where Display has been modified to accept a third argument that specifies a format (like EPS, EPS-TIFF, GIF, Windows Metafile, etc.). -- P.J.
