You can only do that with a program that is able to convert your files to the PDF format. Paperport 9.0 will and I use it. It works very well. You can find it at most retail computer stores or online.

I use Open Office and can scan to jpeg, insert in a document and export to PDF for free.

It's what I use.

keep your exisiting setup and download Free PDF995 which then adds a PDF Printer option to your available printers. It's been absolutely trouble free for me. It throws up an advertising window asking you to upgrade when you print, but if you're in IE explorer you just hit your back button when you're done or 'X' out if you're not online. Small irritation for a super program in my oppinion.

I use Corel Draw 9, which is very inexpensive now and offers all kinds of graphical conversion, editing and drawing features, along with the ability to import and export PDF.
