Search sourceforge.net for the term "pdf".

One result that stands out is:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/itextsharp/

but I haven't looked at it in detail.

Fred,

First of all I'd recommend checking out Kazuya Ujihara freeware iText
"PDF library for .NET Framework" http://www.ujihara.jp/iTextdotNET/en/
free is always good :) I've never tried it, so I can't comment any
further.

If that doesn't meet your needs, and if you happen to have a licensed
copy of Visual Studio.NET Pro or Enterprise Architect edition, then
you have Crystal Reports.NET lite edition, this can output to .PDF

Lastly, Adobe Acrobat has a PDF printer driver (if you can print it,
it can become a PDF), this is extreemly easy to interface with (albeit
potentially confusing for the user) using .NET native support for
printing.

Hope some of this was helpful.
