[OS X TeX] MacGhostview & Macdvix continued

Thanks for the several replies to my problem about MacGhostview and 
Macdvix.  I seem not to have been clear about the problem, though.

The problem is not that I get different sizes/resolutions of document 
on the screen, but that they look basically the same on the screen and 
print out differently, with pdf hardcopy small, and ps hardcopy quite 
large.  Could this instead have to do with my (rather crap) HP Deskjet 
3420 printer?  MacGhostview seems already to have been set to 288 DPI 
as the default.
