I don't see a PhotoDisc target on either the ProfilerPlus or the OptiCAL
disc. Is there somewhere else I can get this file?

When I was done with my second attempt at profiling, this time using Premium
Luster Photo Paper (which is supported by the 2000P driver), I reprinted the
target file. In another message, I explained the deficiencies in this print.
However, when I turned on soft proofing, using the new profile, what I saw
on the screen looked much less like the print than when I turned off soft
proofing. This doesn't really suprise me: if the profile can't instruct the
system to make the print look like the screen, I don't see why it should be
able to make the screen look like the print, either.
