The ONLY way in which this can happen is if you are improperly creating
PDF by distilling PostScript generated for a monochrome printer.

The acceptable methods of PDF generation include (1) save as PDF in
FrameMaker 7, (2) printing to the "Acrobat Distiller" or "Adobe PDF"
PostScript printer driver instances (depending upon platform and
version of Acrobat, (3) same as (2) but to "FILE:" and distilling
the resultant output.

Images coming out in grayscale instead of color would occur if, for
example, you created PostScript by printing to a "Generic PostScript"
of a "LaserJet 4000" printer driver instance.
