    PDFCreator is good. I haven't done it yet, but apparently you can install on your printer server and just share it out and map the clients to it.

    I use PrimoPDF, but I'm not sure if this is available as an MSI. Alternatively, doesn't Office 2007 SP2 have a built in PDF printer? I remember reading Microsoft were going to include this, but I've never looked to see if it's there!

    Office's PDF plug in, no need for any extra training on how to use it...

    We used to use PDFCreator before we now use the PDF tool within Office 2007.

    If you have the adobe master collection or the adobe publishing pack with indesign in it, distillr from memory installs a virtual pdf printer that you can use.
