First, I'd strongly suggest you update your drivers.. there are newer drivers that came out in Nov 07, Dec 07, Jan 08 and even Feb 08. Here's the link to Mac OS drivers for your specific printer...
Please download and install all of the applicable drivers/software, because I have found that features such as color management come from the Easy Photo software, not the driver stuff.
The second link here is the directions on how to set up the duplex printing in Mac OS systems. It's a step-by-step and seems pretty comprehensive.
Let us know how it works out for you!

First thing to check is that the left hand paper guide (as you look at the printer from the front) is up tight against the edge of the paper stack in the feeder. I've seen many printers where (over the course of day to day use) the paper guide has progressively moved itself to the left so that the paper is not held at all. The pick-up for the paper is at the bottom right hand corner and if the guide is loose the paper can skew as it goes in - and then it only gets worse.
Another possibility (and this has just happened to me) is that the long piece of sponge that runs the length of the platen (you'll only see it if you open the top and shine a light in) has come adrift slightly. Mine actually came completely out after 2 or three skewed/crumpled sheets. I washed it, dried it out with kitchen towel and then carefully refitted it. Now the printer is running like a demon.
Let us know what your outcome is.
