Well, I guess I know where the problem is being caused. As I said, I can make 
PS files perfectly, and I can pdf them with ps2pdf.However, ps2pdf12 ( which 
produced pdf version 1.2 documents ) works great, but when I try ps2pdf13 ( 
version 1.3) or ps2pdf14 (version 1.4 ), the resulted files are crappy and 
unreadable. I guess because KWord also defaults to pdf version 1.3, that's 
why the problem occures.

Any ideas on why pdf 1.2 documents are produced perfectly, but when I try to 
convert a PS file into PDF 1.3, the resulted file is unreadable ?
