I just tested it with ps2pdf on a document, and it worked fine.  If
you have problems, play with commenting (or not) the first option line
to hyperref:

\usepackage[
%pdftex,  % needed for pdflatex

In the copy I gave you it's commented out, so it /should/ work for
ps2pdf.  But I've had documents where I've had to uncomment it, and I
think at that point they stop working with ps2pdf, and yes, you lose
the usage of PostScript specials in that case (which I use for things
like whole-page DRAFT watermarks).

Cheers,
