I don't believe this is possible, Hamish, because iSeries printers can only
handle SCS or AFP print streams directly.  You would need to get the PDF
file into that format.
IBM has a product called the InfoPrint server that you can use to
convert/print various "PC" based file formats into AFP, and then print them
on host attached printers. Unfourtunatly, this product also requires the
PASE environment to do the conversions.  It is by no means a "native"
solution, but I haven't really seen any other way to do this as I've also
been looking for this functionality.
