PDF forms and FDF

I have some PDF forms of varoius documents (invoices, ...)
and I would like to populate them with data from MySQL
with PHP (on win2k3)

I tried fdf_* functions, the field filling works fine,
but my mission is not yet complete:

- Acrobat Reader can't save the complete document
(form + PDF). Can I merge "FDF" and "PDF" at the server
side using PHP ? How ?

- It seems that Acrobat reader on Linux could not
fill in forms. Many other non-acrobat reader can't.
Anyone has tryed with Acrobat Reader for linux ?
This problem will be solved if I could merge "FDF" and
"PDF" at the server side.

- In all my modules I need to replicate one or more pages.
For example in a tipical invoice form I have only 10
lines available, so I must replicate the invoice form
as many times as needed in the resulting PDF.
How can I achieve it ? I found fdf_add_template() but
it's totally undocumented ! Is it the right function for me ?
Ho does it works ?

Many thanks for your help
Giovanni
