I have a utility (SPLTOOL) that creates PDFs from spooled files, but only *SCS (text only, no graphics, etc) and let me tell you. It was the worst 4 months of reading (Adobe PDF specs, newsgroups, etc.), testing, etc. of my life. Sure, PDF is pretty, but it's NOT easy. I would look at getting 3rd party software. And also ask yourself "why PDF?".
