[pdftex] Pdflatex printing problems / Acrobat Reader

I am a newbie at pdflatex and am having some trouble printing. The
document I've created using the pdflatex program with the miktex
distribution looks great on screen when I load the .pdf file in Acrobat
Reader. When I print though, I get a message saying "An error occurred
when downloading a font. This document might not print
correctly". Indeed, the equations are terrible - it looks like a
different font is being used during printing than what is displayed
onscreen, but only for the equations in my document.
I was reading some of the archives from this group; someone suggested
editing the psfonts.map file, replacing
cmtex10 CMTEX10 <cmtex10.pfb
cmtex10 CMTEX10 <<cmtex10.pfb
and the like. I did this for the 7 or so fonts that my document is using,
creating a new .pdf file. When I printed this new file, I didn't get the
error message in Acrobat Reader, the equations looked better, but were
missing symbols like minuses.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Would it be worthwhile to switch to a
TrueType font? If so, how do I do this in pdflatex?
Thanks so much.
