There are other readers out there besides adobe. I use this http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php for reading text PDF files when I'm forced to use a windows PC. That pgm fits and executes from a usb drive, is fast but the anti-alias fonts are not the greatest(I guess lots of smoothing equates to a doggedly slow start up). Still, I can read 10 pages before acrobat reader even opens.

This one is a little larger but renders fonts a wee-bit better http://www.visagesoft.com/products/pdfreader/

It's still 3287165897346562318461823979817345 times faster than acrobat reader.
