How to generate ps from texinfo

Hi every body,
I've downloaded the linuxcookbook.deb, unfortunatly, it generates html format, I want pdf or ps, so i downloaded the source linuxcookbook-1.2.orig.tar.gz,
there is a directory info which contains*
and other files *.texinfo, and of course images, txt files...

PS: I tried to generates from Html file a pdf with htmldoc, but there are big iamges and tables so it failed

Run the following from within the above directory
texi2pdf cookbook.texinfo
If you receive complaints about not being able to find certain image files, you may need to convert them first. For example...
for f in *.eps; do ps2pdf $f; done
