PDFCreator asks if you want to do a "server installation" or something 
like that.  I've never tried that option, but you might want to look 
into it.

There's a program called cupspdf available.  It might not be necessary 
anymore with PDF generation becoming built-in to some of the distros, 
but the documentation might give you some ideas about how to best 
implement a networked PDF printer.
