I am using at present Acrobat 5 under OSX and except for a few things 
( indexing and html-exporting with a plug in) everything works, 
especially annotations. The indexing is no problem for files on the hard 
disk because the indexing capabilities of Sherlock are organized in a 
different way such that single folders can be indexed. (The shortcoming 
is that I do not know how the index can be transferred to  CD-rom)
