Thanks, Aaron,
I am using Red Hat 8.0, of course, not Windows. (No M$ garbage in my house).
I have downloaded the form because it would not print from the web page.
It would not print from Acroread, pdf viewer, xpdf or ghostview(converted to postscript), all of which will view the form.
Eventually I got frustrated on my Psyche box and turned on my iBook, downloaded the Acrobat Reader for OS X and managed to download and print from the iBook.
I kept getting and error that lpr or the kde print device could not print the .pdf files or needed to convert it to postscript.  Then I would get an error that it could not print because there was nothing to print, even after conversion to postscript.
I am wondering if there is some plugin missing for lpr to print .pdf and .ps files.
