The manual loaded easily when I used Reader v4.0

Is it possible that you have AcroRead v3.x? And might it be possibly that 
Doc created the PDF in v4.0 format? If so, that's probably the fly in the 
ointment. Reader 3 won't load/display PDFs created as v4 files. DISTILLER 
must be set to create v3-compatible files.
