I don't know the full answer to your question, but I can add a bit of
info.  First, you need the correct version of adobe software.  The
standard acrobat reader can only read files, not create.  This is how
adobe makes it's money: read free, creator very expensive.  I don't have
access to the full acrobat creator(I don't recall it's name), but I do
have access to adobe distillor, which can create pdf's from postscript
files.  If you can get it to postscript, I can convert for you.(BTW, you
can create postscript by setting up a postscript printer on your computer,
and printing in it's format, and printing to file.)


If someone knows that distillor can do more, please let me know, I only
have used it on command line(unix) to create pdf from postscript.
