Yes - Im most interested ...

Tonight I downloaded the ghostscript and ghostview - file - Im no expert
habd hope to be able to install these programs corectly !!

From what I understood - there is another program needed -
is that correct ?

I tried the one which Angus Grieves recommmended - but unfortunately -
continuos link - error -

Is it a necessary file?

Is it correct that the whole process will become much easier with Adobe
Acrobat 4 instead of ghostscript and .. and .. and ?

2) Download prn2file, a DOS utility from PC Magazine, from
unzip it and put into the SW43 directory.
