Hi Lisa -

It sounds like you're running into the difference between a 
vector graphics
and a bitmap operation.  Postscript defines vectors, and thus 
can scale nicely,
while the Gimp works on bitmaps.  Which means that information 
like line type
(e.g., dashed, dotted, etc.) isn't available to the Gimp.

Perhaps you should try importing the postscript into something 
like Sketch,
or another of the free vector editors.  Maybe even xfig?  I 
haven't tried this,
and it may or may not work.
