I've had a lot of luck with dvipdfm. As another poster mentioned, it
used DVI files, but you can also use some tex tags, for example, to
colour the document or add bookmarks to all of your LaTeX section

The output looks much nicer (IMHO) than pslatex, and I have tried it on
server machines (both wintel and linux), with serveral versions of
acroread, without any problems.

dvipdmf is not in slink, but is in the potato teTeX packages
