They all give me white text in black boxes (this is with standard postscript off, with it on nothing gets to the printer, seems to be a problem with the server configuration, I don't have direct access to the printer).

This sounds like a bug in the CUPS driver for that particular printer.
Not much I can do about that I'm afraid.  Just a couple of suggestions:

Hunt around in Mac forums and trouble-shooting sites to see if there's
a newer driver you can download and install.

Or convert your dvi to pdf (install teTeX if necessary) and use some
other app to print the pdf file.
