I can do that, but the images linked from the document
are not there (thats the reason why they are not in the pdf.....)
So, if someone can show me the way to the images there will be also a 
gnucash-guide-with-images.pdf ;-)

Yes I can do this! But there will be no guarantee for "next-day 
pdf-delivery" ;-).... sometimes it will take till the next weekend.....

Just put me a note when there is new documentation ready to convert....
Are there only the two (or three... if we do pdfs with and without 
images) docs on neils website to monitor or are there some more out
