Warning -- Adventures with AdobePS 5.1.2 PostScript Driver for Windows NT 4.0

I downloaded and installed the new Adobe PS 5.1.2 driver for NT (using the
Adobe Distiller PPD) just as soon as I got Dov's message, and was that a
mistake! To test the new driver, I created a PS file from a short (25 page)
FrameMaker book with the new driver. The PS file was OK (checked with
GhostView) but the PDF (made by Distiller 3.01) was totally screwed up.
Extra pages were added in the middle and everything that was in Helvetica or
Courier just disappeared -- blank text.
So I just went back to the previous Adobe PS driver (5.0) and did the whole
thing again, but the result was almost the same: the extra pages are gone
(good) but Helvetica and Courier are still missing -- just blank space in
their place! It's as though the presence of the new driver has screwed up
the old Distiller. I should add that I have generated the PDF many times in
the last few weeks just fine, but since I installed the new PS driver I
can't do anything.
Now I am absolutely stuck. I have tried everything. I rebooted. I
reinstalled Distiller. I removed Helvetica and Courier from my ATM list and
regenrated everything. Nothing helps.
Thanks a lot Adobe.
