First (coz it's the easiest) jpeg->pdf.

Install the "imagemagick" package and simply cast the following spell:
convert piture.jpg foo.pdf

Tada!  And for my next trick (well not mine actually):

... some good info on writing an Open Office macro to read in any OOo file (or 
html) and export it to PDF.  I'll leave it as an exercise for you to write a 
bash script wrapper or whatever floats your boat :)

Please try to limit the amount of "this room doesn't have any bazingas"
until you are told that those rooms are "punched out."  Once punched out,
we have a right to complain about atrocities, missing bazingas, and such.
