Create pdf files for viewing on a Palm PDA

Hi I have a Palm Tungsten PDA and use the Adobe software to view PDF files on it. Before PDFs can be viewed they need to be converted to a special format using PC software. Unfortunately Adobe don't provide the software for linux so i'm now unable to create PDFs for my PDA. Ive tried using wine to run the software but it won't install. Does anybody know of any linux software for converting PDFs for viewing on Palm PDAs?

Open Office converts documents to PDF.

There's probably more but it works for me.

I also am searching for a way to view PDFs natively on my PalmOs handheld. I'd be happy finding a program that'll do a good job at converting PDFs to some other format.
