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.

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.
