Thanks for trying, but that did not work.

Dragging the ps file onto Distiller (macbook), I still get:

Acrobat Distiller 9.3.0
Started: Friday, March 12, 2010 at 3:03 PM
Adobe PostScript software version: 3018.101
CID support library initialization completed.

Distilling: c1s1ex1_1.ps
Start Time: Friday, March 12, 2010 at 3:03 PM
Source: /Users/darnold/Documents/PreAlgText/trunk/chapter1/youtryit/c1s1ex1_1.ps
Destination: /Users/darnold/Documents/PreAlgText/trunk/chapter1/youtryit/c1s1ex1_1.pdf
Adobe PDF Settings: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PDF/Settings/Standard.joboptions
%%[ Warning: ZapfDingbats not found, using Font Substitution. Font cannot be embedded. ]%%
Distill Time: 1 seconds (00:00:01)
**** End of Job ****

Could it be that the fonts are not available in the Mactex Texlive 2009 distribution.  On the mac, ZapfDingbats.ttf is available in /System/Library/Fonts.

And this evidence:
