Thanks guys!  I think I see the problem now.  Printing didn't work so I 
thought that I had to install xprint which used to be required for 
Solaris 8 or 9 (not too sure about this, but that's what I remember)?!? 
But, that was not the problem.  The default for print.postscript.enabled 
was false which I changed to true.  However, with xprint it still 
doesn't work.  With xprint off, it's working now.
