What PDF version and viewer are you using? I had a similar experience
earlier myself but in my case, the problem was to do with PDF version/PDF
viewer rather than colour management. For some reason Acrobat 7 reader
renders the colours greenish on screen with PDF 1.x but printing
should be fine - if you want to see good colours on screen try using
another PDF viewer like kpdf or xpdf, also exporting to PDF X3
should give good results for nearly all PDF viewers.
