Google around for "edit pdf linux" and you'll find a couple of tools  
and tricks, but I'm afraid the only 'real' way to edit PDF's is Adobe  
Acrobat ($$$ and not available for Linux). Adobe Reader for Linux  
will let you fill out PDF forms if that is what you need. PDF files  
are not really suited for editing really. What kind of editing would  
they like to be able to do?
