The general answer is that you need to be able to include PDFMarks
(documented in the SDK and at into the Postscript
stream. Those marks allow you to add non-content information (bookmarks,
links, etc.) to a PDF document when Distiller (or similar programs) process
the PS.

Now, how you include the marks via Windows API calls is a good
question! If it were the Mac OS, I could tell you ;).
