If you are distilling a color document and it becomes black and white,
chances are you are using the wrong printer. You need to be using the
Distiller printer, created using the latest Adobe PostScript driver for your
OS plus the Distiller PPD. Go to the Adobe User to User forums, log on, and
checkout the FAQ section of the FrameMaker forum

Don't use PDF Writer with FrameMaker. PDF Writer uses a non-PostScript
process. FrameMaker includes Adobe Distiller, use that.
