Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OpenOffice 1.0.x will allow you to print to PDF. I'm actually using the 1.1 beta2 right now, and PDF creation is actually simplified to the point where there is a PDF button that you can click to export the file to PDF, without entering the print dialog beforehand.
openoffice beta 1.1 (mentioned above)
and i'd be surprised if the gnome equivalents didn't also do this for you.
the only thing i'd note, i'm not sure if anyone else has this issue but i do, is that you can only use your adobe fonts. with me, if i tried to use my ttf fonts, the resulting pdf would just be blank. i guess it kinda makes sense... of course i could be missing something too....
Even if you only see the option to print to PostScript (PS), do so. Then open up a terminal window and type 'ps2pdf (name-of-your-file.ps)' and press ENTER. This will take the contents of your PS file and create a PDF file out of it.
Distribution: Windows XP, yup :D Will be back onto Ubuntu probably someday
On my home computer, I also only have a PostScript print to file printer, but that is for Mozilla.
I checked the KDE control centre under Peripherals-->Printers and found that there's one named 'Print to file (PDF)'. This, for some reason, is not used for Mozilla, but is for Konquerer.
So instead of opening the file in Mozilla, open it in Konquerer and click Location-->Print (CTRL+P). Then select the 'Print to file (PDF)' printer under name. There are many different settings you can adjust, but the default ones work fine.
Does anybody know how to get Mozilla to use the same 'printers' as the ones set up by/in KDE?
