Have the IT folks increase the spool size allocation for the print spooler.

Check the version of Acrobat Reader she is using. We had this issue at our
office with a manual I created with Framemaker and saved as PDF with
Distiller. Viewing varied between Acrobat Reader 4.0 and 5.0 (we didn't
attempt to print - will test this later today). I still haven't tackled
this issue, but will let you know if I find a fix.

This, or the print server she is using would be the first items I'd
investigate. If the print server isn't "robust" enough - it might not be
able to handle a large PDF.

Hope this helps.
