What package or commands are you using in your tex file to create hyperlinks
in plain pdftex? Presumably, you need to modify those so that they use dvips
specials instead of pdftex specials.

Can you post a short example?

Also, you may need to use
  dvips -z file
to put hyperlinks in the ps file where ps2pdf can see them.

Good luck,
