It can be as simple as just making it a PDF. Most ereaders can handle them. Otherwise, you could try a free program like mobipocket. I've yet to find one that does both ePub and .mobi well. Many can convert them, but it's not perfect. Try googling "free ePub creator".

I just got home from school, so I've yet to unpack all my computers, but if you dont have a better answer in the next couple of days I'll see what program I'm currently using.

Kindles have problems reading PDF (It's stated on Amazon's site when you look for ebook publishing info).

First gens do, but second gens have a built in PDF reader, and first gens should be able to upgrade to the new software I believe. Don't own one, but thats what I've read.

Hmmm, would save a lot of reformating, but then, wouldn't you want your Ebook to be seen on all kindles? Not having them read on old ones kind of kills part of your audience.
