Greetings. I solved the problem with the "Send to Palm" plug-in. The pdf I was using as a test had security enabled, so it wouldn't convert. Other pdfs I tried worked fine.
My remaining problem is I can't seem to activate my Palm for DRM. I was able to activate DRM on my Mac just fine. Anyone had any luck activating your Palm?
As to the question on speed (or lack of it). I find Reader 3 scrolls through a page with no speed hang-ups. Still a bit slow between pages--I get the "working" icon. But it feels to me faster than version 2 (I'm using OS 4 on an m500).
