Changing a Notes document to a PDF file

Is there an easy process to change a notes document to a pdf file and make a pdf attachment to the existing Notes document?
The product "Adobe Distiller" operates as a server and you can install logical printer drivers on the client machines to print to it. You would simply "Print" the notes document to the Adobe Distiller server and the distiller would generate from the .ps internal file the appropriate .pdf. You could then attach this into your Notes Document and you'd be ready to go. As far as automating, it would be the same toolset, the only differrence is that you would issue the print command programatically and give a proper filename that you could then get from the file system and attach to the document, all in one simple LotusScript agent.

Adobe has a good tutorial on creating PDFs from within other applications at  http://www.adobe.com/epaper/tips/pdfapps/page9.html.
