I have had problems with ps2pdf - a lot of the time it just plain
fails, especially if the output is fancy-formatted (like dual
columns).

OpenOffice can export its documents as pdfs, which can provide a lot
of the functionality, but as for editing an existing PDF, I don't know
of a cheap, simple solution.  Acrobat is probably the best, and it's
expensive (by my budget framework).
