    Well, Bert's is certainly the short answer, and it's not entirely inaccurate.

    The new Live Trace feature in CS2 comes closer to doing it well, (and easily), than anything else before it.

    Methods and results depend heavily on the nature of the original raster image. If it's simple shapes or letterforms, the best way to vectorize is manual tracing with Illustrator's pen tools.

    If it's a complex image, (photograph), Live Trace is the best thing to try, but it is debatable whether there is any benefit to doing this in the context of typical workflows.

    I use Flash, Flash 8 seems to do a better, faster job than previous
    versions.

    In Flash>import bitmap to stage>Modify>bitmap>trace, adjust your settings to
    what you need best.

    It's not perfect, but it works.
