Hello Greg,

  ps2pdf13 is my friend!   That is the opensource equivalent of distiller.
BTW, did you know Linux was started in 1971 solely to help AT&T publish
their documents!  Of course Linux has the right tools... just knowing what
to use! ps2pdf13 -dPDFX does the trick.

Thanks for the feedback,
