Natalie, it sounds like you don't have Acrobat set up as a "helper"
app in Netscape (under the Options pull-down, select General
Preferences, then Helpers). Netscape doesn't know what app to open to
view a .pdf file until you tell it.

<shameless plug>You might want to take a look at my site (see sig)
and test this theory... I know the pdf files on the "free samples"
page work, so if you have the same problem when you click on them,
my theory is correct. If not, it must be something else.</shameless plug>
