# [texhax] How to inserting an image as a coverpage?

I am writing up my Masters project, and have to include a coverpage that the
university has provided. The page has been supplied as a word documents, but
I can convert it either to a pdf, or an image, but not a TeX file.

I was originally going to combine my outputted PDF, with the coverpage PDF
using gswin32.exe. However if I do this, all my internal links created with
hyperref no longer work.

I have tried using \includegraphics{coverpage} at the very start, but this
results in the image not taking up all the vertical space, and a blank page
being inserted before the image.

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

...rest of file

Can anyone help, as I have been unable to find anything on the web to solve
the problem.

Thanks
