There is a program that handles this nicely, called ImageMagick.
If you are using Intrepid you can install it with

sudo apt-get install imagemagick

For other versions you will have to download from the website.
http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php

To use simply

convert file.pdf file.jpg

Hope this helps

wyatt--thank you so much for your quick reply--i'll give it a shot and
let you know how it turns out--laura
