Apple Laserwriter Pro 630

Hi there - a quick question for you printer experts:

I have an Apple Laserwriter Pro 630 (32MB Ram)hooked up to a windows computer via the parallel port and running with drivers from adobe.com. Everything prints correctly but data transmission between the computer and printer is incredibly SLOW - maybe 10K/sec - and a long document (like a PDF file) can take 10 or 15 minutes to feed to the printer. Is there any way to improve on this?

BTW - the button on the back of the printer is set to '0'. I looked in the user guide but there doesn't seem to be any setting which changes the baud rate for the parallel port - am I missing something?

Thanks to all for your help.
