JPEG to Vector Based Logo - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I am new to Illustrator and I couldn't find an answer to my question, so I am posting here. I have a logo, a JPEG, that I need to enlarge. When I go to enlarge it, it gets pixelated and jaggedy. I was hoping that I could take logos from clients (jpeg, tiff, tga, etc.) and covert them vector based objects to resize and then print them or use them in other applications without distortion. Can I do this with Illustrator CS? Thanks in advance. Larry...

    Do a forum search on this forum for "Bitmap to Vector".

    Conversion to vector is never a quick or easy task. Re-drawing using the
    raster image as a 'template' is usually the most efficient way.

    There are application that will automate the task (Adobe Streamline, Corel
    Trace) but the resulting vector will nearly always require a greater or
    lesser amount of hand-work to tidy up after conversion. The amount of
    tidying depends greatly upon both the type of original and the quality of
    it.
