I have not used Acrobat very much, but I've noticed people recommending this
process several times. What are the advantages of doing it this way instead
of selecting the PDFWriter or Distiller as your printer (and eliminating
most of other steps)?

from Word 97, which should also work with Word 2000, is to print-to-file
using Adobe's generic PS driver. I then pipe the resulting files into
Distiller. (You can even use the runfilex.ps file that comes with Distiller
to merge multiple ps files into a single PDF.)
