I'm not sure, but this looks as if you want to use the PostScript  
version of the Computer Modern fonts; do you have them installed on  
your machine?
If not, either deactivate the corresponding option in OzTeX (Config/ 
Use Outline Fonts IIRC; or delete the option in the window popping up  
when you start DVIPS), or install them:
Other than that, it might be useful to upgrade to a newer  
distribution, if available (my dvips coming with OzTeX is version  
5.86, but I don't know if there is a newer version than yours  
available which will still run in Classic / OS 9 (which I assume you  
need on the Performa)).

Sorry that I cannot be of more help, since switching to teTeX on OSX  
I don't use OzTeX that often anymore...
