Topic: Convert text to outline in pdf?

A while ago I lost some fonts when I stupidly backed up to a windows server. I desparately need to extract a logo from a pdf (the only place this logo exists as my hdd crashed - hence the hasty backup to a windows server!). The logo contains text and a design and looks correct in the pdf. I don't need the text to still be text, but it must be vector. I can't copy/paste to Illustrator/Freehand and I can't open it in Illustrator - when I try Illustrator substitutes the font. Is there anyway I can convert the text to outlines in the pdf before opening in Illutrator? Or some way I can print the pdf to distiller or something where the text will automatically converted to outlines?
