Hello Lawrence!

Have you tried to double-click the PS files? For me, in Panther, Mac Os 
X 10.3.x, a little window pops up telling me that PS is being converted 
to PDF. Then Preview opens and shows the contents. Preview allows to 
save the PDF file. It also can export the contents in other graphic 
formats (the same that are supported by SIPS, an Apple framework for 
all sorts of graphics manipulations or queries, and a CLI, 
/usr/bin/sips, too).

Make sure the dvips output files contain all font files! Therefore it's 
useful to have at least two printers for dvips: the one that really 
prints on paper, and the other without built-in font cartridges that 
dvips includes all font programme files into its output.
