It's certainly  better to create a texmf directory (i.e. a texmf  
folder) in your


with proper subfolders (tex,fonts,dvips etc. ) and proper  
subsubfolders (tex/generic , tex/latex, etc.).

You can use PSTricks with pdflatex. You need to download PdfTricks  
(or better, NewPdfTricks).

A typical foo.tex document looks like:

[here are the others packages you need]

%%you call here PSTricks packages you need%%%%%%
[and perhaps, other packages]




and with newpdftricks the command is :

pdflatex -shell-escape foo.tex
