Live trace and PDF question. - Adobe Illustrator Windows

What is up with the live trace? Why can't I do it to a pdf? Any other format I try to do it in looses some of the original image. Is there something I am doing wrong. I have tried opening it in photoshop and saved it as .eps, .tiff, and just about any other format. They don't look as good as the original. Any help would be greatly apprecitated. Matt...

    You are expecting too much! There is no way a vector conversion of a
    raster image is going to look identical to the original raster.

    Isn't a pdf file already a vector based format? I thought it was a compressed version of eps. If so, it should not be traceable. Wouldn't you have to first rasterize it and then trace it?

    is this "live trace" feature only available in CS2?
