Imagemagick and ESP Ghostscript

I have two boxes, a Debian Etch and a RHEL 5.0 box. On the Debian box I can convert a PDF to a JPG without a problem, however on the RHEL 5.0 box I get errors. Both are using the default packages.

####@jkw2:~$ convert -h
Version: ImageMagick 6.2.4 02/10/07 Q16

####@jkw2:~$ gs
ESP Ghostscript 815.03 (2006-08-25)

####$ convert -h
Version: ImageMagick 6.2.8 01/18/07 Q16

####$ gs
ESP Ghostscript 8.15.2 (2006-04-19)

On the RHEL box I get the following error.

####$ convert test.pdf test.jpg

convert: Postscript delegate failed `test.pdf'.

I don't have any problems with the same PDF on the Debian box. So what should I look for?
