Not Reader 6 -- Acrobat 6. Reader 7 is the first _reader_ version that
supports review/comment. But the _full_ version of Acrobat 6 (or 7)
permits collaborative review without the Adobe server software. 

BTW, good luck finding out much about the server products on the Adobe
website. When we looked into the review/comment features, I chased my
tail around their site for a couple of hours without ever finding any
pricing info -- or even detailed descriptions beyond the vague
market-speak promises and generalities. Every attempt to drill deeper
eventually led me back to where I'd come from, no wiser than before. :-}
