Do you have the full Acrobat or just the reader?
If you have the full acrobat, you have 3 ways to convert to PDF, depending
on your setup:
1. Use the PDF Maker Macro from inside word.
2. If you have Acrobat set up as a virtual printer, print directly to it.
3. Print to a postscript file, and then use Distiller to convert it to PDF.

If you do not have the full Acrobat, there are a few shareware/freeware
applications out that the can convert to PDF.

If you have access to OSX, you have an option to print to PDF build in to
the system.
