Sounds like you have an extremely complicated file, possibly with large
images or blends. Don't count on it getting very much smaller even when
you follow the path you describe.

Don't know much about Quark, and you haven't said which OS you are
using. However, it 'sounds' like Windows. In which case you need to
install a PostScript printer first. Once you've done that you 'may' be
able to save as PostScript but at worst you can set the printer to
'print to file' and print to it.
Note that if you have Acrobat installed you should already have a
PostScript printer installed which, when you print to it, will create a
PDF file directly using Distiller. If you want to do the conversion
manually, simply set the printer to 'print to file'.
