Printing to a .ps file on a network share

This is a printing question.

I have a Windows 2000 desktop machine in which I need to be able to print from a program to a file.  The file type will be a postscript file.  The name should be the name of the original file being printed.  For example, if the original file was test123.doc, then the printed file would be test123.ps.  Is there a way to capture this field and automatically pass it to the printer?  I don't want the user to be required to enter a name.  Also, I want the final file to be created in a specific shared folder on a Windows 2003 server on the LAN.

I have found the Adobe print driver that will let me print to a ps file locally.  The problem is that it always requires the user to enter the complete path and file name.  It also may not be able to print to a share, but I haven't yet tested to see if this is a permissions problem yet.

DeskPDF by DocuDesk works pretty good in our organization.

It looks like DeskPDF may only produce PDF files.  I need PS files.  Please correct me if I am wrong about that software.  Thanks.
