I have made some progress!

I am able to print in plaintext, but postscript documents fail.  I think
this was the case all along, but I was using the CUPS "Print Test
Page"function on the web administration -- is it possible that it's
sending a postscript page to the printer instead of ASCII text?

I've got a bit more research to do as to how to make postscript
documents also print, but there is some success!  If anyone would like
to point me in the right direction, I'd be appreciative. :)
