Sorry not to be able to find the thread on nabble.  Anyway, this is what we 
use, and it does do pdf 417 with the appropriate backend.

Here is the main site

and backends

Of course, you do have to be running Linux.  But the price of commercial 
software for this stuff, the excellence of kbarcode, the cheapness of 
making another partition for the new OS, to me its a no brainer.  Just 
about any bar code you want, and integrated label printing.  And it works 
perfectly and is very easy to use.  You would think, considering the 
commercial packages, that this was rocket science or heart surgery, but it 
really aint.
