Subject: Avoiding/removing the Async Shell Command buffer

In gnuemacs 23, I have a shell command I want to run asynchronously but I want 
it to not open an output buffer (except perhaps if there is an error - but that 
is quite unlikely). Could someone suggest an approach to solving this? Does it 
take creation of a custom async-shell-command variant?

I have tried implementing some commands to remove that buffer, but it fails and 
prompts me to be sure I want to kill the buffer. Here is what I have tried:

(defun org-doc ()
   "Open PDF for Org Mode"
   (async-shell-command (concat custom-dir "/org-7.7/doc/org.pdf"))
   ; like to have it put away the *Async Shell Command* buffer
   (let ( (process (get-buffer-process "*Async Shell Command*")) )
      (kill-process process))
   (kill-buffer "*Async Shell Command*"))

Does anyone see any *mistakes* in that code?
