Laserwriter IInt driver problems in 10.2.4...?

I recently hooked up my LW IInt up to the ethernet network using Asante's ethernet to localtalk bridge.  Both the G4 running 10.2.4 and the G3 running 9.2.2 see the printer, but only the 9.2.2 system is actually able to print.  Print center can see the printer and add it, but after a small wait where print center indicates it is processing and printing, nothing ever materializes and the printer returns to standby.  I have tried the generic ppd (as no IInt option is available) and I've tried a few other printer models, all of which yield similar results.  Any suggestions?

Get the IINT PPDs. Should be able to get them from Apple.

I have searched apple's site and cannot find any laserwriter IInt drivers for OSX.  Are you suggesting there is a way to trick X into taking a 7-9 ppd?

The problem is that the OS X printer drivers that ship with OS X are Postscript level 2 or above. The IINT is Postscript level 1. So, grab those packages to enable postscript level 1, and also include the IINT PPDs.

After a few minor adjustments and a few changes to the included instructions I was able to get it to recognize and print.  Thanks.
