Default The ABCs of PDF/X-1a

I need to send an ad file to a publisher that prefers the PDF/X-1a file format.

They will also accept a TIFF/IT P-1.

I don't know how to produce either one. I've got CS2, so I have Acrobat 7 Pro and Photoshop CS2.

Can either of these file formats be produced by someone who doesn't know what they're doing, or am I asking for trouble?

In the olden days, I used to send a PDF to a service bureau that would convert it to the fancy PDF format using some kind of software they had. I never looked behind the curtain to see what they were doing.
