when you installed Acrobat, it should have also stuffed a little icon
into your Word toolbar that runs your Word document through their PDF
export feature, which retains bookmarks and adds TOC links...

at least, that's what i've used...

otherwise, printing to Distiller or whatever shouldn't work because
it's just supposed to send print information, and those bookmarks
aren't it...

of course, that little icon in my Word toolbar has caused a lot of
Word lock-ups and other unpleasantness, too...
