    You can download and use open office instead or word and it's a simple export, or you can use a free service like this... http://www.doc2pdf.net/

    No I wasn't referring to MS word, rather an open source suite of the same apps found in MS office. Check it out... http://www.openoffice.org/

    try Nitro PDF Professional
    it allows you to install a toolbar for Word, Excel and PowerPoint which give you the ability to save your Word doc as a pdf.
