There is a script around called tex2pdf that I use that does it all
for you.  It converts your eps and ps docs to epdf and pdf and then
runs pdflatex for you, cleans things up and everything, even generates
bookmark lists from your table of contents.  Can't remember where I
found it, but I used google, so you can probable find it there too.
