Right. However, there may be a path to get some data in. Protel will import 
DXF, and there are, I understand, some utilities that will convert 
bitmapped files as well as other formats to DXF.

There will be scaling issues, and component and information will not be in 
the file, one may need to restore it.

The problem is similar to converting gerber to PCB, only more complex 
because of scaling and because both gerber and Protel are vector-based. I 
don't know about PDF.
