Adobe Acrobat 5 is a free reader
Actually, Acrobat 5 IS the correct program for what he is attempting to do--what you are thinking of is actually labeled as Acrobat Reader, which is the free standalone reader for PDF documents.
Now, if you actually have a full version of Acrobat, it is a little confusing in that it doesn't have a "new" button really. Just scan all the pages you want (don't go too high a resolution, or the file will be huge) and on the "File" menu, select "import", then "image"--browse to the scans, and import them---I'm not sure if it is possible to do "bulk" importing of images, or if you have to do them 1 by 1. It automatically converts the to the adobe file type, and you can then save the file as a brand new PDF
Just trying to clear the air a little.
