Thank you all for your suggestions.  Unfortunately, I was never able to
get it working when printing to a single ps file and using the distiller
either (even with generate Tagged PDF off).  However, when I save each
chapter independently, I can merge them into the final PDF I need.

Thanks again for your help,

One other thing you may look at is using the uh, vetern version of
Distiller....

I'd be surprised if FM * wasn't shipping with Distiller 8, and you just
didn't install it. But it's likely to make a big difference.

Assuming you need all the features of Acrobat 6, it's probably time to
upgrade to the current version.
