The reader that Adobe supplies for the PalmOS cannot read PDF files directly. They must be converted to Palm format. The download from Adobe includes a converter to use your PDA reader on the PC to convert the files for Palm use. There is a true PDF reader available for Palm from Metaviewsoft called PalmPDF. It is freeware and can support reflow on the Palm. It is based on Xpdf.
