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
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:
ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/tex/ctan/fonts/cm/ps-type1/bluesky/cmps-
macintosh.hqx
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...

Bernhard
