works for me.  the following will show you if
all drivers are correctly loaded:

>>> import Image
>>> Image.init()
>>> Image.SAVE.keys()
['PNG', 'PDF', 'IM', 'PPM', 'BMP', 'GIF', 'XBM', 'MSP', 'JPEG', 'EPS', 'DES', 'TIFF']

if you don't get the same results, your installation
is broken.


btw, I just noticed that the PDF driver doesn't work
for "L" images.  "/DctDecode" should be "/DCTDecode".
might be problems with "RGB" and "CMYK" images too
-- I'll fix that in 1.0 final.
