If the file prints properly to a real printer, but not to Distiller,
perhaps use the 'print to file' option to make a PS file (assuming the
real printer is Postcript) and Distill that one, instead of the one that
Distiller makes. You don't need to rename the file extension to '.PS'
from '.PRN' or whatever, Distiller seems happy either way.
