PDF color prints not matching printouts from Indesign - Adobe Indesign Windows

I am using Indesign 2.0 and Acrobat 5.0 and I'm printing out on an Epson 1280. I made a printout of an Indesign file which produced colors that I am satisfied with. When I exported the file into Acrobat and printed it out, the colors were not matching the original Indesign printout and the colors appeared oversaturated. I have tried playing with the Distiller preferences but I'm not sure what I would have to select in the color settings to get the colors to match Indesign. Does anyone have any advice on what i should do to get the colors ...

    When you export to PDF try
    Export PDF > Advanced > Colour > Colour: Leave Unchanged.
