AFAIK, the Phaser printers (formerly by Tektronix) are native PostScript
Thus, go th the Xerox web xite, select the printer(s) you swant to use,
and look for
"driver downloads" or the like. If there are drivers for Linux offered,
use these,
otherwise use those for WinNT or higher. In the latter case, you'll
usually get an .exe file
containing an installation script. If you have a smart decompressor, you
may extract
the PPD(s) from there, otherwise run the installation and get the PPD
from the windows
spool system directory (don't remember the exact name now).
