Default PPD problem ? OS X & Xerox Phaser 6120

Hi all,

I hope this isn't too silly a question...

We just bought a new Xerox Phaser 6120 printer for our home network. My wife does layout part time at home; Quark & InDesign with Illustrator eps's and PS psd's in the documents as a rule.

Now using OS X.4.8...

We've had 2 Apple Laserwriter printers which were alway recognized (in System 7 and OS 8, 9, and X) as Postscript printers. Needing a faster printer, we bought the Phaser 6120, which seemed like quite a bargain at $299 (after $200 rebate). It's a postscript 3 printer, according to the documentation, but Photoshop CS2 seems to not believe that.

It says (when printing a test jpeg):

"Some postscript specific print settings (Emulsion, Interpolation, Calibration, Encoding) will be ignored since you are printing to a non-postscript printer."

This is annoying since I was really trying to make sure that I WAS printing to a POSTSCRIPT PRINTER.

Is there some setting that I've neglected to change ? Is this a PS emulation printer ?

I've tried using both the Bonjour interface and Appletalk. I also tried using the generic postscript driver (as opposed to the Phaser 6120 driver installed by the Xerox Cd) with Appletalk. Same Result. Everything seems to print fine so far, but the error message from Adobe's very expensive app are worrying...

Should I just check the box in the dialogue that says "don't show this message again" or will there be trouble down the road ?

Thanks for any help,
