It seems like I always have problems when I try to send out the actual
files. Most printers just don't use it, so they don't know how to deal
with the files. What I do instead is send the files out to a print file
(in some cases, I've had to get print drivers from the printer -
Postscript isn't *always* Postscript). If you're comfortable editing
Postscript files (I'm not), you can strip out the headers and footers
from in-between files and combine them into one continuous print file.

I use PKZIP and have had few problems that weren't attributed to a bad
disk or noisy transfer. You will definitely want to compress the files,
esp. if you're using Postscript. I've had Postscript files that were
upward of 80M that compressed to 3 or 4M. Talk about a difference in
transfer time!

Hope this helps.
