I'm re-posting this because the links were dead.

Create PDF documents on the fly — for Free!
Portable Document Format (PDF) is the de facto standard for the secure and reliable distribution and exchange of electronic documents and forms around the world.  CutePDF Writer (formerly CutePDF Printer) is the free version of commercial PDF creation software. CutePDF Writer installs itself as a "printer subsystem". This enables virtually any Windows applications (must be able to print) to create professional quality PDF documents - with just a push of a button!
FREE for commercial and non-commercial use!  No watermarks!  No Popup Web Ads!
Have specific and advanced needs above and beyond that of other users?
Integrate PDF creation ability into any application, solution, service or terminal server (e.g. Citrix) environment and more.  Custom Redistribution now available!
Installation Requirements

    * Supports Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista (x32/x64).

Using CutePDF Writer to create PDF document:

   1. Open your original document and select Print command in File menu of your application to bring up Print dialog box.
   2. Then select CutePDF Writer as the Printer to print (DO NOT select "Print to file" option).
   3. You will get a Save As dialog box prompted for saving created PDF file.
      Select a folder to Save in and enter a File name, then click on Save.
   4. Go to that folder to find your PDF file.

I use this with DVD Profiler.  Works great.  Allows me to print in PDF and save the file as a PDF.  Easier to send my list of DVDs to friends who want to borrow a movie.
