Picture of Create a PDF
This instructable will teach you how to create a PDF file. It starts with downloading certain programs and going all the way to viewing the PDF file. In this instructable I will guide you through downloading a program named OpenOffice 3.0. If you have OpenOffice 3.0 you may skip to step 5. You do need OpenOffice 3.0. Version 2 will NOT work.

Step 1: Visit OpenOffice.org

great instructable, even if it just publicises yet another reason that open office is infinitely superior than M$ office
I agree with all the anti Microsoft stuff - i highly recommend Fedora and Ubuntu even Mandriva for the more adventurous
And I love OpenOffice.

Another suggestion is Zamzar - Zamzar converts files (online, you get the file in an E-mail) they convert (.obscurefiletype) to (.obscurefiletype).

Good luck...

microsoft office (i know the student edition does) has a plugin in which you can save as a pdf...its very easy to install and quite helpful....however, openoffice is far superior...

Not only is OpenOffice better it is also free. There is really no reason to need Microsoft Office unless you need it for a specific class at school. OpenOffice beats MSOffice in almost every way.
