You need Adobe Acrobat (not just the reader, the entire Acrobat package).

I think they have a pay for use online service if you donít want to buy Acrobat. Check out adobe.com.

There are numerous freeware converters that will change a Word Document to PDF. Try doing a search on Google with "doc pdf convert" and you'll find a rash of them.
You might also consider getting a copy of OpenOffice - it reads DOC files and exports directly to PDF. The software is free (no gimmicks, it's really free) and I find it at least as useful as Microsoft Office. You can find it at http://www.openoffice.org The download is a little hefty - if you're on dialup.
Hope that helps.

as said Open Office is a nice program but if you want just a free converter check out something like newfreeware.com and search for something like "doc to pdf converter"
