Oh, the horror. Get yourself IrfanView. It is much, much, faster than the
WinXP viewer, at least when displaying multi-page TIFFs and changing pages
on my 800MHz box. http://www.irfanview.com/

Another thing. Adobe Acrobat includes *two* printer drivers. There's
Distiller and PDFWriter. I'm not sure why there are two, but Distiller is
better. It gives you control over more things, like the DPI of the images in
the PDF. If you are using PDFWriter, I suggest you switch over to Distiller.

One caveat: IrfanView, TMK, won't rotate all the pages in the TIFF. After
you create the PDF you'll need to open it up in Acrobat (not Reader but
Acrobat proper), rotate the pages, and save. This, however, is a very quick
operation, and it also gives you the opportunity to delete blank pages from
the PDF or combine multiple PDFs into one.
