I have been a big fan of Adobe Pagemaker for a number of years.
Now I want to be able to forward files so they may be read in Adobe Reader. (In short, I want my Pagemaker files to be opened by people who do not have Pagemaker.)
I believe I have to convert these files to PDF format, and to do this I need to have PostScript Printer Driver - which I have.
I also need to download Adobe Acrobat Distiller 4.x/5.x. This I am unable to do as I can not locate it anywhere.
How do I get around this problem?

18 MB of hard disk space for Acrobat Distiller
32 MB RAM
The Acrobat Distiller 3.02 for UNIX Y2K Patch consists of two files:
-the distill file, which is the Distiller startup script.
-the distill.y2kfix.pl file, which is a Perl script that is invoked by the Distiller startup script.
To install the Acrobat Distiller 3.0.2 Y2K Update:
1.Make a backup copy of the distill file, which is located in the Distiller 3.02 installation directory. For example: cp distill distill.bak
2.Copy the distill file and the distill.y2kfix.pl file included in the archive to the Distiller 3.02 installation directory.
3.Make sure that the distill.y2kfix.pl file has execute permissions. For example:
chmod a+x distill.y2kfix.pl
4.Modify line 1 of the distill.y2kfix.pl file so that it contains the pathname to the Perl interpreter installed on your system.
5.Modify line 16 of the distill file so that the "install_dir" contains the pathname to the Acrobat Distiller 3.02 installation directory.
Look no further than the original 6.5 pagemaker CD installation disks under the extras you will find the distiller and you can install it from there, it will work for InDesign as well.
