An alternative to switching to switching out of pdftex is to use  
pdftricks to convert things for you. Personally, I prefer the dvips+gs  
suggestion you were given earlier, and even more now that I got my  
hands on Pixen to make sure all my images are .eps formatted.

I'd like to add a quick separate suggestion. Using


in your preamble is a good way to go. That will save you having to  
remember which packages associated with pstricks accomplish which  
parts of it. Sure, there's a little bloat when loading things, but I  
don't find it causes a significant problem.
