Non-PostScript Inkjet printers usually expect RGB data, even though
they use CMYK inks.
If you send CMYK data to an inkjet printer, the CMYK values will be
converted to RGB before printing. This conversion occurs in the
printer, and you have no way of controlling it. The only way I know
for cirventing this behavior is to reverse-engineer the printer
driver in order to write your own custom driver.
In summary, don't expect to get a good match between a CMYK file
on a PostScript printer and the same file on an inkjet printer.
That's strange, because ColorSync is automatically installed
with OS 9. Maybe you should try installing it from your CD.
I'm using FrameMaker 7 with exactly the same OS as you, and
ColorSync is definitely available.
You are not alone having problems with color management. Maybe
it would be a good idea to visit Adobe's Color Management user
forum, since the problem you are encountering is not specific to
I would also recommend the recently published "Real World Color
Management", by Bruce Fraser et al. (ISBN 0-201-77340-6). It's
a really thorough, practical introduction to this complex subject.
