Is distiller running and giving you an error when you try to run a postscript file from pagemaker, or is Distiller not even starting? It sounds like more of a problem with the postscipt file than with distiller itself. Try to create a .ps file out of another program, or try a simple document from pagemaker with only text. If those work then look to your pagemaker document for the problem, print to postscript for half of the document and see if it distills, then try the other half, then further divide your document till you can isolate the page/graphic that is causing the problem.
Distiller isn't opening at all, it won't even launch from its .exe file. But thanks for the suggestion to create a .ps file from another program, will try that and see what happens.
If Distiller isn't running then it will not be worth it. Try reinstalling distiller with full administrator privileges, or try Bob's suggestions.

Some hints are here: http://bigjohnd.org.uk/PageMakerExportPDF/installdistiller.htm Note the tutorial shows PM7 and Win2K. IIRC, the postscript driver is incorporated into WinXP.
