Making an icon from a PSD file

Hi all, I'm trying to create a Mac OS X compatible high res icon for my printer that I can use instead of the generic.

I've created a 128 x 128 pixel photoshop file with a high res transparent photo of the printer inside. I'm not sure how to change this into an icon.

Can anyone help me out?

Here's the file,
MacBook Pro 2Ghz, 512Mb, 120GB
2nd Gen 8gb black iPod Nano

I've used a Photoshop plugin from a company called Kinetic Creations. It's shareware (10 free tries) so if you're only wanting it for an icon or two, it's a good thing. You just drop it in your plugin folder in Photoshop, restart Photoshop if it's open, and you go to File, Export, Export Icon. As easy as that!

I used it to make my iPod look like an old school Walkman, when I plug it in

There's also IconBuilder another Photoshop plug-in that'll convert your file into an icon.
