Thanks, Britt:
They told me either CMYK or RGB, so I didn't convert it to CMYK, but 
will do so now.
I sometimes have trouble colorizing to a specific PMS color in PShop, it 
looks different than specifying it in Illustrator.
I do it both ways, but somehow was under the impression that it could be 
done with an RGB file as well. I'll try it in CMYK.
Many thanks,
