This is what I do to get pdf version of a notebook on windows. 
Choose File->Print, check the box "Print to File". Mathematica produces a .prn
file. Open the file with Ghostscript (I use gsview 4.6). Choose
File->Convert->pdfwrite and appropriate resolution.
This works also on linux if you produce .ps file.

Hope it helps,

AK
