If you are using Windows NT, it comes with the DocuTech drivers.

If have access to several different postscript printers, or work in an
environment where someone keeps changing the printer(s) you can use,
this driver works on at least most postscript printers, if not all. By
using this driver, I didn't experience the pagination problems that
can happen when you switch printer drivers.
