There are couple of ways make to pdf documents. One of the of the ways is to use a ps (Postscript) format file. Since you need the postscript format also, we'll start with MS Word doc format convert it to postscript. To start, I need you start Word and your document already loaded. Follow this steps:
Now you have a postscript of you Word document. Now you need to convert it to pdf format. At this time you need to logout from Windows, and login to a Linux or Unix machine. After you login, go to the directory where you have saved the postscript file (from steps above). The command to convert ps to pdf is ps2pdf. Follow this step:
ps2pdf yourfile.ps yourfile.pdf
NOTE: Will replace yourfile.ps with the actual ps file you have made form Word.
Now you have your Word document in pdf format.
